Mayday Mayday Mayday - Firefighter Distress Call

When firefighters need help they issue a mayday call over the radio. That's what happened overnight in Toronto, after two firefighters who rescued two residents from a fully involved house fire, had to call for help themselves.

A woman who was trapped inside the fire on Gordon Rd in Toronto called 911 and was able to guide rescuers to her location inside the very large home. She was rescued out a window and down a ladder. Her husband was rescued from the roof at the rear. 

I arrived while firefighters were still trying to find the woman in the smoke filled house. She looked lifeless when they dragged her out and got her on a stretcher, but it appears she will survive.
