21 Jan 2019


A Dundee cabbie rescued his unconscious neighbour from a burning flat, and then amazingly went straight back to work.


36 year old, Alan Rafferty, briefly went home on January 15, discovering that a neighbours ground floor flat in Cardross Place, Dundee, was ablaze.


Alan, ignoring the flames, entered the flat and found his neighbour unconscious on a sofa by the flames.


Alan then dragged his neighbour away from the fire, whos flames had now reached approximately five feet.


The Scottish Sun reported tjan Alan had ventilated the room and tried to dampen the fire down with water.


Incredibly, Alan then returned to work at around 8pm.


The victim is believed to have suffered no lasting injuries.
