We were dazzled by the story of Georgette Clemons, the Connecticut bride who jumped out of the car taking her to her reception in order to warn a family that their Bridgeport home was on fire. Now it turns out she's downplaying her act of kindness: The initial Connecticut Post story mentioned that she ran into the burning home to get the occupants out but now the Conn. Post says, "Clemons said Monday that instead of pulling the woman who was inside the house to safety, she and her friend coaxed the woman to come out" from the porch (she also says the friend went into the foyer; her husband was in another car). At any rate, 16-year-old Lowell Eitelberg, who was playing video games in the house during the time of the fire, told the NY Post: "Whenever you think of something like this happening, you don't imagine the person who's going to save you in a situation like this to be dressed in the nicest clothes they'll ever wear in their life. If someone was caring enough to ruin the best day of their life to save me, it's the most incredible thing." And his mother told Clemons, "Mazel tov!" adding, "I told her to go back to her festivities, but she stayed and helped."
