Man Scales Building To Save Mother From Fire

An apartment building in Philadelphia caught fire last week and this guy would stop at nothing to make sure his mother was alright inside!

Firefighters, rightfully so, would not let Jermaine enter the building to check on his 65-year-old mother so he did the next best thing and scaled the side of the building!

This man literally climbed 15 floors to get to her only to find out the fire was contained, she was fine and had to climb back down!

His descent was caught on camera by a news helicopter and he actually expected to be arrested for it but an understanding officer let him go!

“He told me if I didn’t leave I was going straight to jail. Because that was his job. But, he actually did cut me a break,” said Jermaine. “He understood the circumstances, he knew – when your adrenaline is pumping, and your mom is up there, you thinking she’s dying – you’d do anything you can.”

Luckily, he is okay and so is his mother and other residents of the apartment complex.
