Age ain’t nothing but a number! Lindell Marbut saw a car lose control, flip over, and catch on fire. Despite being 85-years-old and using a cane to get around, Marbut went outside to try and help while his caretaker ran next door to call 911.
He saw the 22-year-old driver’s hand and pulled her out of the fiery car and pulled her to the garage. Marbut and his caretaker, Sondra Young, then helped pull the passenger out of the car, too. “If it wasn’t for the gentleman to pull them out,” firefighter Keith Flemming says, “it wouldn’t have been a good turnout.”
As for Marbut himself, he doesn’t feel like a hero. “I just feel like an old man trying to save somebody’s life,” he says. “I’d do it again if I had to.”
