Mass. Lt. Gov. Pulls Kids From Burning Van

WORCESTER, Mass. - This wasn't part of the job description when Timothy Murray was voted lieutenant governor of Massachusetts. Murray is being hailed for pulling two children out of a burning minivan in Worcester, about 40 miles west of Boston.

Murray was driving through his hometown at about 7 p.m. on Tuesday when he noticed smoke and flames coming from a parked minivan's tire. He stopped and called 911, then heard someone yell that there were children inside.

Murray helped the children out of the van, and brought them to their grandmother, who had been driving.

He tells The Telegram & Gazette she told him she was worried that he was trying to steal the car or the kids and was "about to punch him."

Firefighters arrived seconds later to put out the fire, which they called minor.
