Amina Kaabi is a hero, the VCU student saved her elderly neighbor form his burning home. At first what she thought she saw burning was candles, but as she walked closer she saw smoke. Quickly Kaabi dialed 911 then ran inside. All she remembers is holding her breath not wanting to breathe in the smoke.
She found her neighbor standing in a room, at first she tried to walk him out, but ended up carrying the man out. Another passerby stopped his car to help her carry the man out to safety.
The upstairs neighbors were also rushing out of the house, and say it felt good to know someone was there to help.
