A young woman caring for a 5-year-old Kentucky boy ran barefoot through flames to rescue him from a house fire. WAVE-TV in Louisville quoted 22-year-old Alyson Myatt who said she awoke to a noise early Tuesday and sprinted upstairs to find the carpet blazing and Aiden Hawes calling out that he was under his covers. Myatt grabbed the boy and ran out of the house. The child wasn't injured, but the home burned.
Shelbyville Fire Department Chief Willard Tucker said Aiden probably wouldn't have survived until firefighters arrived. He said the fire started in the attic near a bathroom fan. Myatt was burned on her feet, legs and hands and was under care at University Hospital in Louisville. She was working as a live-in nanny while the boy's father was out of town.
