A 90-year-old man pulled his wife of 68 years to safety in her wheelchair as a fire ravaged their North Carolina home.
Arthur Schneider jumped into action after a lightning storm hit a street transformer, causing flames to crawl through his Asheboro house, he told the Daily News Saturday.
Arthur immediately thought of his wife Rosemary, 89, who has Parkinson’s disease and dementia. She was all the way at the back of the house and cannot walk.
“I had to go back and get her,” Arthur said. “She’s part of me.”
