Sad story! And I hate to throw the word hero around, but the kid went above and beyond what most people would have done. In fact I more or less agree
with others in the thread about the fact that he went back in to get his disabled uncle when there were others around who may been more capable of
Unless I am missing something and they to were disabled or incapable. I do not think a 6 yr old would be able to do much for a disabled relative even
if he got in the burning trailer. I mean the little dude - Tyler was 6 yrs old, it says he died by his uncle, so at least he got to him. But its not
like a 6yr old is going to be dragging a full grown older man through a burring trailer and whatever else to safety, even if he wanted to and had the
inclination. Physically he was not up to the challenge, and in fact most full grown men in full firefighters gear would probably have a hard time
carrying a full grown adult out of that even if he was and old frail dissembled man who needed a wheelchair or crutches to get around.
Not to be judgmental on the others there, as I dont know the details, and who knows what was what actually happened and there is a shock value in
such things were your mind just freezes, especially if you just woke up to that. But lets just say if I was that kids parents and found out the rest
of the full bodied able adults were very capable, but just stood around twiddling there thumbs while he went back in, or did not even try to stop
him, they would all likely and soon be ex-family members.
But again just drawing at straws there, because I would be pissed. In all, its likely that everybody was to out of it and to shocked to think on
much, and the kid being the most alert probably instinctively just took off before anybody noticed him anyways. So I suppose I would retract the
above statement as who really knows what went down, and in what position, and condition everybody was in. Sad story anyways.
