25 years ago,Ray Anderson,a single parent with a one-year-old son witnessed a terrible accident which took place when the driver of a truck ran a red light and collided with the car of Sandra D.
The impact of the collision killed Sandra instantly.
But her three-month-old daughter was left trapped in the burning car.
While others looked on in horror,Andersen jumped out of his vehicle and crawled into the car through the shadowed rear window to try to free the infant.
Seconds later,the car was enclosed in flames.
But to everyone's amazement,Andersen was able to pull the baby to safety.
While the baby was all right,Andersen was seriously injured.
Two days later he died.
But his heroic act was published widely in the media.
His son was soon adopted by relatives.
The most remarkable part of the story unfolded only last week.
Karen and her boyfriend Michael were looking through some old boxes when they came across some old newspaper clippings.
"This is me when I was a new born baby.
I was rescued from a burning car.
But my mother died in the accident," explained Karen.
Although Michael knew Karen's mother had died years earlier,he never fully understood the circumstances until he skimmed over the newspaper article.
To Karen's surprise,Michael was absorbed in the details of the accident.
And he began to cry uncontrollably.
Then he revealed that the man that pulled Karen from the flames was the father he never knew.
The two embraced and shed many tears,recounting stories told to them about their parents.
