Amazon Delivery Man Rescues A Family From A Burning Home In Long Island, New York

An Amazon driver saved a Long Island family from a house fire after he saw they were in danger while delivering packages.

Kevin Rivera, 22, was finishing his Saturday afternoon route on Bluebird Drive in Syosset when he saw a fire raging in one of the houses “I just rushed in, because I didn’t want nobody to die in that house,” Rivera told CBS2.

Rivera saw several family members through the front door who were apparently unaware of the flames, he told the Daily Mail, One man did come outside and see the fire, but was so shocked he just stood there.

Despite a language barrier, Rivera was able to evacuate the entire family, including a mother, her infant, three other children, and a grandmother. When the family saw the flames, he said, “They just started crying. They just got emotional.”

Rivera also grabbed the family’s two dogs, a golden retriever and a smaller breed.

Rivera’s selfless actions were caught on video by neighbor Amanda Johnson, whose husband is a firefighter with the Syosset Fire Department. She shared the footage on Facebook, where she praised the driver’s intuition. “A lot of people are stepping away from doing things today, and he stepped toward this,” she told the Daily Mail.

“It’s pretty amazing that Kevin did this.”

Experts agree that the aftermath could have been much worse. A release from the local police department confirmed that $1.5 million residence, which was last sold in 2021, was severely damaged and the family has been displaced.
