VIDEO: It was a fearless act caught on video where a rookie firefighter stepped into action in a moment of disaster.
“They definitely put me in the right spot at the right time and allowed me to pretty much be all eyes on me,” Winston-Salem Firefighter Henry Murray said.
It was a moment Murray will never forget. He has been a firefighter for only two weeks when the call came in on Motor Road early Wednesday morning.
“When I got out there, I got out of the truck I thought to myself, ‘Hey, this is a lot.’ It happens pretty quick and I was just following the lead of my captain,” Murray said.
Instead of following he led by example. Battling those strong flames with a team at his side.
“I was confident I had very good leadership that was around. It was a team effort and there’s a lot of knowledge around that got me to this spot right here,” Murray said.
Thankfully no one was hurt, but Murray knows it’s not always going to be easy.
