Man Saves His Family From Burning House, Runs Back in to Save His Bud Light

Last week a Georgia man rescued his family and made a heroic escape when his home caught fire, but he also saved something almost equally important: his stash of Bud Light.


WTVM reports that Walter Serpit was watching TV with five adults and two children when the living room began to fill with smoke. He helped the family make a safe escape from the house, which caught fire due to a faulty water heater. But as soon as Serpit made it out safely, he turned right back around to grab a bunch of his beers that were trapped inside the burning building.

“I was trying to get my beer out,” he told WTVM. “I went back into the house like a dummy and the door shut on me because this back draft was about to kill me.”

Serpit and his beloved Bud Light made it out safely, but of course we have to wonder: why risk your life for BUD LIGHT? At least make it Bud Light Lime.

At least family came first. He could have saved the beer first. :)

That is one crazy guy!  We have a Go List - should there be a reason to evacuate the house we all have things to grab on the way out if we can do so safely - but would never run back in and most certainly would never run back for a food item or beverage!  I am going to call this guy an idiot!

**Shakes head and thinks of the movie Idiocracy**

I'm just glad they are all safe.
