A 10-year-old girl, Ann Waxman, rescued her big brother from certain death last night, when a house broke out in their house in Manchester. Anns parents were out of town for the weekend when faulty wiring caused the fire to start in the middle of the night. The young girl was awakened by the familys dog,Danny, who was barking excitedly in the back garden. Ann smelled something burning and immediately ran through the smoke-filled house to wake her older brother, Frank. When Frank would not wake up, Ann got some help from the family dog. Franks unconscious body was far too heavy for the little girl to move alone, but the clever girl brought the dog inside and tied the dogs lead to Franks left ankle. She then grabbed her brothers right ankle, and together, girl and dog pulled Frank to safety. The little heroine is quite modest about the whole thing. I couldnt have done it without Danny. Our dog, she said afterwards. Im just glad were all alright. Ann is to receive a medal for her bravery from Mayor Witticombe next week.
