But, what about the people who aren't paid to be real heroes every day? The regular people that become a part of a dangerous situation because they're in the right place at the right time to help. The people who display heroic behavior at the risk of their own life.

A hero, like that, was born on July 11th, 2022 at around midnight in Lafayette, IN.

According to ABC 7 and Bored Panda,

Nicholas Bostic, a 25-year-old pizza delivery driver, happened to be driving past a home in the city of Lafayette, Indiana at midnight, when he noticed a two-story house on fire...he feared that there were people trapped inside but didn’t have his phone with him to call 911.

Bravely, he decided to enter the home himself, and as it turned out, five people were inside the house: four siblings aged 1, 6, 13, and 18, and another 13-year-old who was sleeping over.

He got in through a back door, yelling to see if anyone could hear him. His shouting woke up the eldest sibling, who then woke up the two younger teens and grabbed her 1-year-old sister before Nicholas led them outside to safety.
