DETROIT (WJBK) –
He won’t admit it but one Detroit neighborhood mailman is a hero now. “I wouldn’t say a hero,” Darrian Crutcher says, hoping to set the record straight. But others see it differently.
Tuesday morning Detroit firefighters responded to a house fire on Stansbury Street. When they arrived they found Crutcher upstairs putting the fire out with the home’s garden hose.
Firefighters applaud Crutcher’s job. “He did great! I asked him after it was over, I said, ‘Hey man, you should come join us! We’re hiring right now!'” David Weems of the Detroit Fire Department tells us.
Crutcher stayed on the job until firefighters arrived. When they did he just went back about his business, not even pausing to take a break or get a drink of water.
