What a horrible tragedy:
TORONTO — In one of two fatal GTA fires Sunday, a Toronto dad handed his baby son to a visiting neighbour — then gave his life in a desperate bid to find a second child in the family’s North York home.
Toronto firefighters waded through heavy black smoke and pulled the man and his 12-year-old daughter from the second floor of their 1 1/2-storey postwar Kemp Square house shortly after 3 p.m.
Neither had lifesigns, but Toronto Fire District Chief Stephan Powell said paramedics revived the girl.
This man was a hero. May he rest in peace.by
