Army National Guardsman rescued others before dying in NYC fire #hero @NationalGuard @USArmy

NEW YORK — The victims of New York City's deadliest fire in decades include a man who immigrated to the Bronx from Ghana and dreamed of becoming a military policeman. A relative told The New York Times that Emmanuel Mensah had rescued a number of people then went back into the burning building, where he died of smoke inhalation.
