GOOD NEWS Firefighters Attend Woman's College Graduation 10 Years After Saving Her Life
Here's a touching story a decade in the making.
Two Chicago firefighters attended the college graduation of a woman whose life they saved ten years ago.
On July 27, 2005, a fire broke out inside a South Side Chicago home.
Firefighters Richard Rosado and John Patton saved an unconscious little girl who was hanging out of a window. Patton climbed a ladder up to the second-story window to rescue the girl and handed her off to Rosado.
Although she suffered second and third-degree burns, Jasmine Doss survived. Now, she is a college graduate.
Doss was able to walk across the Northwestern College graduation stage on Friday because of the two firefighters' bravery ten years ago.
Rosado, now a commander working in the fire commissioner’s office, and Patton, since retired from the department, attended the ceremony for an emotional reunion with Doss.
"I'm so grateful for these two, because if it was not for them, I would not be here today," Doss said. "I will never forget them. Never."
Doss graduated with an associate's degree in criminal justice. She plans to become a police officer.
