Good Samaritan Hero Kevin Rivera
Kevin Rivera, a former Amazon delivery driver, bravely rescued a family of six and their two pets from a house fire while on his delivery route in Syosset, NY last September. Kevin saw that one of the houses he often delivered to was on fire and called 911 before rushing inside to help. Despite a language barrier, Kevin managed to communicate with the family and led them to safety.
