Boy Who Saved Six Declared Honorary Firefighter at Funeral

A deal from the food delivery service DoorDash devolved into hectic scenes across the U.S.

The 8-year-old New York state boy who died while saving the lives of six people in a trailer fire was laid to rest Wednesday — complete with his own fireman's helmet and the title of honorary firefighter. Tyler Doohan, a fourth-grader at East Rochester Elementary School, raced through his grandfather's trailer home in suburban Penfield early on the morning of Jan. 20, alerting friends and family to a raging fire. He was crediting with saving the lives of six people. The Penfield fire chief declared Tyler an honorary firefighter, presenting a personal fire helmet during the service at St. John of Rochester Catholic Church, NBC station WHEC of Rochester reported. Fire companies cross the country also added Tyler's name to their duty rosters in tribute Wednesday.
