In a story that seems like it was ripped from our nightmares, an 8-year old boy named Demetrius Gollett was at his great-grandmother’s home on February 18, when it caught fire. Demetrius was trapped in a hallway as the house burned around him, ultimately killing his great-grandmother and badly injuring his great-grandfather. Fortunately, two firefighters were able to rush into the fire and save Demetrius, but the boy still had to spend a month in a burn center, where he was unconscious for two weeks.
Demetrius is home with his family in Ft. Pierce, Florida now, and everyone seems to be trying to help him return to normalcy and make him happy. But it turns out that one man could take care of that all by himself.
