Man Saves Wife, Child and Huge Slab of Barbecue Ribs from Fire

 

 

 

After a fire raged through an apartment next to his, a Californian man proudly shows a huge slab of barbecue ribs he saved.

 

 

Upon escaping the fire near his apartment, Robert Wright speaks with a local news station.

“The only thing I think first is ‘make sure them ribs is right’ and ran over and got my family man,” Mr Wright said, in the interview that is now going viral.

Mr Wright managed to rescue his wife and children along with his ribs as a woman and child who also were in the burning apartment scrambled out a window.

The fire broke out at 3am; Mr Wright explains why he was barbecuing at such an odd time.

“It was three o’clock in the morning, I was hungry man, I was like put them ribs on there,”

Two occupants of the burning apartment have been taken to hospital for smoke inhalation, but Mr Wright says he needs no medical attention.

“I didn’t get any injuries except for all the smoke in my lungs, but I already had smoke in my lungs so I’m alright,” he said.

“I’m gonna enjoy this barbeque and have a good night.”
