12-year-old Jeriemy Whiting of Summit Township is hailed as a hero, after he saved his family from a fire that started in their home. Jeriemy says he doesn't remember much of it.
"She was like what, and I was like, my room is on fire! Then we both ran upstairs. I forgot what happened after that," said Jeriemy.
But his family will never forget the 12-year-old's bravery.
"He was the one that got everybody out of the house," said Eric Whiting, Jeriemy's father.
Jeriemy woke everyone up when the fire started in his room. In minutes, everyone was out of the house, except for two-month-old Caleb, who was still trapped in an upstairs bedroom. Danielle Dangler, Jeriemy's step-mother, felt helpless.
"I could not get to him," said Dangler.
Eric tried to go after his youngest son.
"Couldn't go up, halfway up, couldn't go up," said Eric. He collapsed halfway up the staircase from smoke inhalation. That's when Jeriemy crawled under the smoke, got to his brother, and brought him outside, to safety.
"He gets him from here," said Dangler gesturing to the baby's bed, "and he takes him all the way outside."
"It was pure courage," said Eric, "he didn't think about it twice. Didn't think about it twice." There's not a father on this earth who's prouder of their son today than I am of mine."
Now Jeriemy and his family are left to pick up the pieces from the fire damage, but they say they're lucky, their loss could have been much worse. As for Jeriemy, he says risking his life for his family, was a simple decision.
"Because I love them," Jeriemy said, " that's what I need."
