the fire department saw half the house had already burned down the firefighters saw a house that was in danger of completely collapsing part of the house had not yet been absorbed by the flames and the firefighters decided to look for an entrance the team had a great responsibility fate was in their hands something they were aware of it was necessary to think and act quickly as the fire grew more and More intense despite the fact that this was the team’s typical workday these types of rescue operations remain extremely important due to the possible consequences action had to be taken as quickly as possible and this is exactly what the team of firefighters did finding an entrance was difficult due to all the smoke and burnt areas still the team cleverly managed to

create an entrance the team had to go inside anyway so that They could check that everyone had been evacuated part of the team battled the fire while the other part managed to create an entrance mike was on the team that created an entrance upon entering work was done quickly as the heat of the flames became increasingly intense mike followed his gut and checked every place people could possibly be he was going from room to room when suddenly he saw a sign of life among the flames Despite the adrenaline in mike’s body the firefighter knew how to restrain himself he stayed focused and knew exactly what to do he had seen that a mistake in this rescue operation could have enormous consequences in one of the rooms he saw a sign of life

a crib when he looked into the crib he saw a baby at the time he never imagined the impact this baby would have on his life the baby was stuck in the crib and mike realized he had to hurry He realized that half of the house had already burned down and it was only a matter of time until the last part was up the room was full of smoke hot smoke another 20 seconds and it would have been a different outcome i found the baby curled up in a crib in the bedroom like you said he quickly rescued the baby from the crib and brought it to safety he had rescued a nine-month-old baby subsequently mike got the baby to safety As quickly as possible and went to help his colleagues with the rest of the fire when the rescue operation was over he didn’t know what had happened to the baby he knew she would be in good hands for now back with her parents mike kept asking himself many questions about the rescue for the rest of his life things happened regularly around him that

made him think about the incident this was mainly because he had no idea What had happened to the baby he couldn’t even remember the baby’s name sometimes he even had sleepless nights because his thoughts were constantly focused on the well-being of the baby how would he or she be doing now is it a boy or a girl could he or she have inhaled too much smoke after all all questions mike couldn’t find answers to even after mike had retired he kept thinking about the rescue operation it still kept him awake at times and his Loved ones began to worry they saw that mike had a hard time dealing with not knowing what had happened finally mike decided to investigate his search started with his colleagues from the fire service everyone could still remember the event but unfortunately no one could remember a name they also had no other leads much to mike’s disappointment however the ex-firefighters could imagine what mike was struggling with every firefighter Has an impactful rescue they would never forget mike’s longing was unstoppable until suddenly

there was a lead mike has a very good relationship with his mother and he asked her for advice his mother wanted to help her son he could vent to her and said that he was thinking more and more about the baby from the rescue he asked his mother if she had any idea how he could get information mike’s mother is very proud of her son the bond Between the two has always been strong and she’s always been his greatest fan she has always been by his side expressing great wonder at the many lives her son has saved including the baby as mike’s biggest fan she kept a lot of papers that featured articles about her son in mike’s career he managed to end up in the newspaper several times as they were going through the collection of newspapers together mike saw the paper that read she’s alive This was the newspaper that could finally give him a little more clarity the newspaper was the perfect starting point for his search through this he was able to find out the whereabouts of the now grown baby it found out her name through the newspaper danielle Davidson

finally a lead that mike could continue with mike continued his search via facebook this was the only thing he could think of to find the now 17 year old he didn’t Get very far with just a name there turned out to be a lot of people called danielle davidson still mike didn’t give up he decided to send as many messages as possible to people named danielle davidson who were around 17 years old mike had expected that only the real danielle would respond nothing was farther from the truth he got a lot of responses from different people unfortunately these were all Disappointing the real danielle was not among them at least not right away mike gradually began to lose hope he got one message after another but unfortunately these were all responses from people who didn’t fit mike’s story then suddenly mike got a reaction that changed everything the ex-firefighter had received a response from someone who could very well be the danielle davidson he was looking for danielle was very confused she didn’t Understand the context partly because she

was only nine months old when it all happened i was quite confused at first i didn’t know all this had happened said danielle davidson fortunately her parents were able to give danielle some clarity they explained the whole story to danielle and how she was rescued from a burning house as a baby still both danielle and her parents didn’t immediately trust mike’s message all he had sent her was hi my name is mike Hughes i think i rescued you from a fire when you were a baby danielle and her parents were therefore a bit skeptical about mike’s message initially still they decided to respond to make sure this really was the man who saved her life danielle asked a question that only the real firefighter who saved her could know she tested me she wrote back oh yeah what was my mom doing mike was put to the test with a question about a detail from 17 years ago the Rescue had had such an impact on mike’s life that he obviously knew the answer he didn’t

have to think for a second while she was at work and your father was there he hoped danielle would believe him not only was the family amazed that after all these years he had remembered this small detail but that he also went looking for the baby he had rescued 17 years ago they never imagined that danielle’s rescue had such an impact on mike’s life Danielle had heard parts of stories about the fire but she’d never gotten the full story she never expected that the fire and the rescue operation had had such an impact on the life of the firefighter in question she only now realized how big mike’s role in her life actually was without him she would have never been where she is today she decided to respond to mike’s message when he received confirmation from her That she was indeed the danielle he rescued from a burning house 17 years ago he was in shock the ex-firefighter was moved to tears when he learned that the baby he had rescued all those years ago had grown into an adult in good health this was just the beginning of a very nice friendship

between mike and danielle danielle and mike kept in touch they texted each other and kept each other informed about each other’s lives Danielle told mike about her school hobbies and that she was an athlete she was successful at running in field athletics and mike couldn’t believe his luck hearing all the beautiful details of danielle’s life all this made mike feel really connected to danielle’s life both realized all too well that danielle owed her life to him and how beautiful it was to meet after so many years what danielle decided to do next was a big surprise for mike Danielle was about to graduate and she wanted to share this important highlight of her life with mike without him she would have never been able to go to school at all and the bond the two had built in such a short time was very important to her she wanted to do something so he could be there also

they had never met in person and had only communicated with each other online danielle thought it was time to change that one day mike opened his mailbox and Saw a large purple and black letter he didn’t know who had sent it but as soon as he opened it he thought of danielle the letter contained a photo but mike didn’t immediately realize that the letter had actually been set by her when he started reading mike became incredibly proud and couldn’t control his emotions the letter was an invitation to danielle’s graduation ceremony mike was very surprised but also very Happy he decided to attend the graduation ceremony and was very proud of her being allowed to attend this important event in her life didn’t just mean a lot to mike danielle’s entire family was thrilled that mike could be there for this important moment in danielle’s life when danielle and mike saw each other in person after the ceremony tears went streaming down both their

cheeks really emotional I don’t really know how to describe it i guess they’re just they’re happy tears just to realize that you know some things could have gone wrong at the time of her graduation she was still deeply grateful to mike’s team that saved her for some reason it just doesn’t really feel like me i mean that’s obviously me but it’s just really hard to believe Sometimes my guided she was the third person i’ve dragged out of a fire in my career so i always say three times a charm started out a little bit rough and then she’s made it all the way through high school now so she’s successful and happy so i like that’s perfect we are sure that mike’s mother was prouder than ever and that mike and danielle will stay in touch for a long time.
