Brave Mom Who Almost Died Saving Children From Terrible Fire Recovers And Marries Their Father

Date October 18, 2018

Being a mother means putting your children’s life before yours, it is the instinct which leads women to act in dangerous situations, empowering them with courage and unnatural strength. Angel Fiorini had to experience that. She selflessly threw herself into the fire in order to rescue her children. Angel is the mother of three kids, who lived in Spokane, Washington.

One night, she woke up suddenly because she was having trouble breathing and realized the whole room was filled with thick smoke. When she opened her bedroom door, what she saw shocked her to the core: The house was on fire and her three kids were inside. The woman did not have a moment to doubt, she rushed to their bedrooms.

It was easy to grab the youngest, Vinnie (4) and Rosaline (2). She run outside to put them in a safe place. The fire devoured the house so fast that coming back for the third daughter Giana (8) was a huge risk to the lives of both. Waiting might have been even more deadly. Angel knew she could not count on help at that very moment, and she had to act quickly.

She got into the house again, this time she crawled and could barely open her eyes because of the heat and the smoke. When she dragged an unconscious Gianna to the doorway, she saw their skin was coming off the flesh, but she kept moving. By the time she came to, she was in hospital with third-degree burns, as well as her daughter, but they were alive.

Angel recovered pretty quickly, also having to overcome bacterial pneumonia, which could kill her. She left the hospital five weeks after the accident. 

Her home, though, had been turned to ashes. The family received massive support from the community, but despite being uncomfrotable receiving donations, Angel was astonished that so many people were willing to help.

Every cloud has a silver line – Angel’s boyfriend, and the father of her children, Aaron, was away when the fire happened, and he came back while Angel and Gianna were in the hospital. He looked after the ladies and, when his girlfriend recovered, he proposed to her. They got married shortly after.

This is a tragic story, but it has a happy ending. Perhaps Aaron was inspired and impressed by Angel’s bravery and selflessness towards their children.

The whole family is safe and sound now and, we hope, very happy.
