Teen hero honored after rescuing two neighbor children from burning building

A teenager ran into a burning home, then ran out, carrying two young children. The City of Philadelphia is saying “Thank You.”

FC Wesley Methodist Church joined the Philadelphia Fire Department to honor 18-year-old David Gullette Sunday. The ceremony took place one month after the Logan area teen ran into a burning home at 56th Street and Girard Avenue, carrying his 4-year-old and 5-year-old neighbors to safety.

“I just get them outside and make sure they’re cool away from the house. And, I knock on the neighbor’s house, get them out because the fire can travel fast,” said David Gullette.

Deputy Chief Charles Johnson says David unequivocally saved two little lives that day. Encouraging him to continue his good deeds and hold on to his sense of community. The Chief and David even discovering they share a special connection.

“I grew up in that West Philadelphia area,” said Chief Johnson. “The fact that he actually wants to help the Philadelphia Fire spread the message about making sure you have working smoke alarms in your house on every level and knowing what to do when they’re activated – it makes me feel so proud,” Chief Johnson added.

David’s proud mom and family members looked on as he was honored. 

“I wasn’t really expecting any of this to happen. I’m really honored. I really appreciate this,” Gullette stated.

David still sees the two little boys he saved. They live in his neighborhood. David indicated it would be very cool to join the fire department.
