Brave firefighter rescues baby from burning house, 17 years later, he attends her graduation

Brave firefighter rescues baby from burning house, 17 years later, he attends her graduation


Out of the countless fires this retired fire fighter has battled, the most memorable one involved a baby that he saved 19 years ago.

In 1998, Mike Hughes, captain of the Wenatchee Fire Department in Washington, dashed inside the burning house to save an infant from her crib.

“Our engine pulled up and the whole interior part of the house was burning heavily,” Hughes told ABC News.

“The door to the bedroom was partially open and she was in her crib just squirming so I snatched her up and got her to the front door and handed her off to the first firefighter who was there,” said Hughes, alluding to the 1998 fire.


This 1998 fire rescue made the headline in a local newspaper, showing a photo of Hughes clutching a baby in his arms.

If he were 20 seconds later, it would have been a different story.

The day of the rescue was still vivid in Hughes’s mind. He couldn’t forget it, and often wondered how that baby he saved had been progressing in life.

His curiosity prompted him to look for Dawnielle Davidson on Facebook. He found her and left her a message: “I think I pulled you out of a fire when you were a baby.”

Davidson had little idea of this incident, but, upon confirmation with her mother, she struck up an acquaintance with her savior from when she was a seventh-grader seven years ago.


“I was just kind of confused at first. I didn’t know any of this had happened,” she told TODAY.
