Many years ago, a fireman named Mike Hughes saved nine-month-old Danielle Davison from a fire at her home. But what is already an uplifting story doesn’t end on just this happy note alone.
’When we arrived, a large part of the house was already engulfed in flames. I found Danielle curled up in her crib in the bedroom’, Mike recalls.
Several years later, he wanted to find out what had happened to the child he had saved. Having found her on Facebook, he sent her a message: ’I think I once pulled you out of a fire when you were still a very little girl.’ From this moment onwards, they didn’t stop talking; Mike became a second father to Danielle.
17 years after the fire at her home, Danielle invited Mike to her graduation ceremony, as her one-time savior and close friend.
Mike cried when he heard Danielle’s speech at the ceremony: ’Mike’s presence here is really important to me. I always cry from happiness when I think about how everything could have been so different. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you.’
