Homeless man rescues children from burning building

A homeless man is being hailed as a hero after saving two small children from a Las Vegas fire. Anival Angulo was walking down a quiet backstreet when he saw smoke rising from an apartment building and heard children screaming for help. Angulo, 36, rushed toward the fire, jumped over a locked gate, and used his strength to pry a dead bolt–locked security door open. A 3-year-old girl rushed out and wrapped her arms around Angulo. After ensuring her safety, Angulo doubled back to pull her baby brother away from the burning apartment. "I just knew I had to get them out," Angulo said. Christina Colizza
