Hero of the Week … It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s … Tori Phillips.

Tori Phillips, a man who happens to love Superman and was wearing a Superman hoodie, did his best to honor his action superhero the best way he could. A four-alarm apartment fire that destroyed dozens of residences at the Mayan Palms Apartments on the 7500-block of Hunnicut Road in East Dallas, TX. Superman to the rescue. As firefighters battled the fire, Tori Phillips, dressed in a Superman hoodie helped rescue a baby from the fire as the baby was dropped from the building into his arms. Phillips was among many who lost his apartment unit due to the fire, but Superman said he’ll move on from that and the baby he found momentarily in his arms this morning is a way bigger deal to him than the things he lost. KUDOS to Mr. Phillips!

Amid all the destruction and the dozens of displaced residents, NBC 5 managed to find some good news at the scene. While going around and helping bang on doors to get people up and out, Regina Whitaker witnessed some fellow residents doing more to try to save lives.

“They were taking their hands and breaking the glass and they pulled that fence to help get a disabled man out,” said Whitaker. “We were just trying to get as many people out as we can from here and in the back. There were people with a baby. They had to drop a baby down.”

Tori Phillips, who happens to love Superman and was wearing a Superman hoodie, caught the baby.

“I’d seen they needed help and they were scared to come down with their baby and I was like, ‘I’m right here, I’ll catch ‘em.’ So that’s what I did and then another dude helped get his wife down and then he jumped down and got them to safety,” said Phillips.

Phillips is among those who lost his apartment unit but the good Samaritan said he’ll move on from that. The baby he found momentarily in his arms this morning is a way bigger deal to him than the things he lost.
