"A Palmerston North man who crawled into a burning house to rescue a baby was terrified at the time, but said he could not ignore the screams and pleas of family members.
The fire, which gutted the Wellesbourne St house in central Palmerston North, started about 7am today.
Inside at the time was a 16-month-old baby girl, a four-year-old boy and three adults, including the children's mother.
The adults and eldest child escaped out the back of the house, but the baby was trapped in a front room, separated from her family by a thick wall of smoke.
Neighbour Tony Selby, who lives in the sleepout behind the house, heard the adults screaming for the baby and rushed inside..."
OK, who abandons a burning house WITHOUT the baby? Or stands around outside wailing.
Should be trying or dying- that's what PARENTS do...
