The bravery of Nicholas Bostic saved five children after the pizza delivery driver spotted smoke and jumped into action!
Nicholas Bostic may never be hailed a hero by the masses like let's say Superman of Metropolis. Or John Wayne in True Grit or even George Washington at Valley Forge.
But this 25-year-old pizza delivery driver is the greatest hero one family will ever know!
Pizza Delivery Driver Spots Fire
At around midnight on Monday, July 11 as Nick Bostic was driving through LaFayette, Indiana. Llittle did he know, God had him on a path to save five children.
Nick spotted a house in flames. Seeing no emergency help outside the home, he entered the backdoor and began yelling to anyone inside. His shouts woke four of the five kids in the home, and he quickly helped them escape the burning structure.
Once out, the kids told Nick that one child remained inside. Nick ran right back into the flames to locate the missing 6-year-old girl. Unable to find her in the upstairs bedroom, he began looking for an exit.
He then heard the youngster's cries from the ground floor.
Nick covered his mouth and nose with his shirt and returned downstairs for her. Unable to find his original exit, Nick, now holding the little girl safely in his arms, went upstairs once again, finally busting and jumping from a second-story window!
Nick did all of this within a matter of minutes and without thought for his own safety! That's pretty incredible!

Pizza Delivery Driver Praised After He Saved Five Children
The Lafayette Police Department, now on the scene, took the unharmed child from Nick in order to attend to him. Nick had cut his arm when he broke the window through which they escaped, and he had smoke inhalation. But, even as the medics treated him, Nick wanted assurance that the "baby" was okay.
In a statement by LPD, a representative said, "The Lafayette Police Department and the Honorable Mayor Tony Roswarski are eternally grateful for Nicholas’ intervention and would like to publicly recognize him for his actions.” That is exactly what will happen when Nick is recognized at the August 2 Lafayette Aviators’ National Night Out.
For Nick's part, he told TMZ that he was just very thankful and blessed to have been there at the right time and to have had the opportunity to save the five children. Nicholas is receiving tons of love on social media and through the GoFundMe page that has been set up.
Still a young man himself, Nick certainly showed unconditional love and caring when he stopped, acted, and put himself in harm's way to save five beautiful kids!
