Georgia man saves beer from fire

Rotthammer – No, that’s not Walter Serpit


A man in Columbus, Georgia will likely be given the Key to the City after selflessly running into a burning building to save those that were inside. No, not kids or kittens. Beers.

Walter Serpit had already ensured that all people were out of the house, but they weren’t the only ones in danger. There was a perfectly innocent sixer in the fridge that was crying for help. Serpit answered that call.

I went back into the house like a dummy. I told them to get the kids out and everything, and me myself, being an alcoholic, I was trying to get my beer out. You feel me?

There’s nothing funny about being an alcoholic or the decisions it causes people to make, but since he was unharmed it’s tough not to laugh. The man walks with a cane but managed to spring to life to save his Bud. Now that’s a real American hero.
