Paramedic rescues two from house fire

A Waynesville, MO paramedic rescued two people from a burning structure with the assistance of Waynesville Fire Department. KY3 News has the story:

Mike McCart is a jack of all trades. He is not only a paramedic but also a former volunteer firefighter and a member of Task Force One. He is trained in all aspects of rescue.

That training helped save the lives of two people stuck on the second floor of the Shannon Valley apartments after a fire broke out around midnight.

“So I went up, one of the Waynesville firefighters came up behind me, to support me. We got the young lady out first, got her down the ladder, handed her off, went back up for the gentleman. Heavy smoke was coming out of the room. He was having a lot of trouble breathing, so we reached in, and got hold of him,” said McCart.
