Woman’s story about how she escaped an apartment fire is incredible
‘I got my three kids and we bounced out.’
A fire at an apartment complex in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Sunday has left more than 100 people without power or heat. But that doesn’t seem to have taken too much of a toll on the residents’ spirits.
In an interview with a local news station, Michelle Dobyne, one of the building’s residents, recounted what happened with some unexpected humor, explaining how a neighbor of hers realized that the building was on fire and how she “got her three kids and bounced out.” Her interview has garnered more than 12 million views in 15 hours. Check it out and you’ll understand why.
According to the news station, the Red Cross has opened a shelter for the residents at the Southern Hills Baptist Church.
This isn’t the first time that a news interview about a fire has gone viral. You probably remember how Sweet Brown’s “ain’t nobody got time for that” became one of the biggest memes of 2012.
