. . .Dec. 8 was like any other night. Chris and Nicole Davidson fed their three children dinner and tucked them into bed by 8:30 p.m. However, the Davidsons were awakened in the middle of the night to the smell of smoke in their home in New Tazewell, Tennessee.
“And about 11:30 someone woke me up and I know it was God,” Nicole told WLTV-TV.
Nicole said Chris, who is a former fireman, “grabbed the fire extinguisher trying to buy me time to get the kids, and I grabbed the boys because they were closest to the fire.”
They ran outside, but their 22-month-old daughter was still inside the burning home. . .
Young Eli reminisced about saving his sister in the dire situation, “Dad busted the window and then I said, ‘I can’t do it,’ like two times, and then I said, ‘I got her dad’. And when we went down there I said, ‘I was scared but I didn’t want my sister to die.” (Read more from “7-Year-Old Boy Went Back Into Raging House Fire to Rescue Baby Sister” HERE)
