VIDEO: Mass. Officer Helps Rescue Man from Burning House

When Officer Carl Farrington of the Lawrence (Mass.) Police Department arrived on the scene of a house fire around 9:15 p.m. Monday, he saw an older man pulling his 53-year-old son out of the burning home.

The man weighs around 300 pounds, according to authorities.

That’s when Farrington and Deputy Fire Chief John McGinnis ran into the home and carried the man down a flight of stairs and outside, CBS Boston reports.
