Oh My! See The Shocking Moment A Writer Ran Into His Burning Home Just To Save His Laptop
A novelist was so worried about losing his life’s work that he ran past firefighters into his burning home to retrieve a laptop. Gideon Hodge, who describes himself as a playwright, novelist and actor, ran into the building as it was ablaze – ignoring firefighters who were yelling at him to stop.
It took 67 officers more than two hours to bring the huge fire in New Orleans under control.
After the dangerous rescue, Hodge told The New Orleans Advocate: ‘Anybody that’s ever created art, there’s no replacing that. It’s got pretty much my life’s work.’
And the 35-year-old, who found the laptop intact, continued: ‘Despite my better sense, I just ran inside and grabbed it. I didn’t think to be scared.’
He had been working when his fiance told him about the fire, and he rushed back.
