Gotta love that Cory Booker!
Newark Mayor Cory Booker, speaking on "CBS This Morning," described how he returned home Thursday night and saw his neighbor's home engulfed in flames. A woman was screaming that her daughter was still inside.
The mayor's security detail tried to drag him away, but Booker told them that the woman was going to die, Detective Alex Rodriguez told CBS. "Without thinking twice, he ran into the flames and rescued this young lady," Rodriguez said.
Booker, 42, an up-and-coming Democratic politician who has been mentioned as a possible future candidate for governor, said he feared for his life as the kitchen erupted in the flames and he couldn't find the woman. The woman called out, he said, and Booker grabbed her from a bed and threw her over his shoulder.
