This week’s Random Act of Kid-ness comes to us from Dallas, TX, where 18 year old Jessica Gallegos saved the lives of six of her friends in a house fire over the weekend. She and her friends were asleep in a farmhouse, when Jessica woke up to the smell of smoke and noticed the fire that had already engulfed the home’s front porch. She quickly ran around the house to let her friends know so they could get out safely. Jessica’s friend Cheyenne said:
“She saved all of our lives. If she wasn’t there, then we wouldn’t be here today. I’m just really happy she was there.”
Cheyenne suffered 2nd degree burns, but everyone else made it out with no injuries, just in time to graduate high school next week. Way to go, Jessica! Read more here.
