Whether it’s walking down the street, exiting your favorite coffee shop, or going for a stroll through the park, it’s easy to spot the large number of homeless people we see on a daily basis, especially when living in a city or a large town.

But while they often fade into the background of our daily lives, they look to us for help. There are ample opportunities for us to do so, but not many in the reverse situation.

However, a homeless man in Miami named Thomas wished all his life to be at the right place at the right time, but the opportunity didn’t quite present itself the way he thought it out. He is almost in tears when he talks about it: he was able to save several lives, including a child, after he witnessed an apartment fire break out.

Thomas was fishing in a canal for his dinner when he noticed the house across the water. It suddenly burst into flames, and he didn’t hesitate before rushing over to get the people in the building out.

Now watch the clip to learn more about his heroic efforts and how he managed this massive feat.
