Billy Cretan a Hero After Saving a Boy From Bronx Fire (Video)
Billy Cretan from the Bronx is being called a hero today after saving four-year-old Christopher Ramcharran who was trapped in a burning building.
Billy Cretan saw flames and smoke rising from the building near the store he owns and said his instincts just took over.
"I kicked in gear, put the ladder down and went upstairs and I did the best I could," he told WCBS TV's Katherine Brown.
When Billy climbed up the fire escape he saw Christopher choking on smoke and he used his body to shield the boy as he carried him down. As soon as Ramcharran was down on the ground he was given oxygen and he is doing well.
