A woman dies while trying to save her children from a house fire

A woman died after helping save his three young children of a fire in his house. The woman took her children from the home in Spalding County, Georgia.

This was reported by the county’s chief of fire operations, Michael Byrd. One of Madison Hope Summerville’s children “screamed for help” and was discovered by someone at a nearby recycling center.

The individual alerted at a fire station of the facts. Fire officials, along with two neighbors, rushed to the house and rescued the mother and two children inside.

“The only thing we knew we had to do was get the babies out,” said neighbor Bradley Wright. “Then he opens the door and takes out the first child, who I performed CPR on for about 10 minutes,” he explained. “He had kids that age and all he knew was what any parent would do: just jump into action and make sure the babies were okay,” he added.

Died from smoke inhalation

The woman refused to leave the house until all her children were safe. Summerville died from inhalation a day after the fire, according to Spalding County Coroner Michael Pryor. The woman was an organ donor and with her donation “she helped eight other people.”

“She was amazing in the fact that he did everything he could to try to get his children out… to the point where it basically cost him his life,” Pryor said.

Summerville’s sister described her as an “incredible mother, wife, sister, daughter and friend” on the GoFundMe page. “She loved spending time with her babies and her nieces and nephews and she also loved to fish, rain or shine,” she noted.

“Madison was a happy person who made you laugh instantly,” they added.

The fundraiser was organized on GoFundMe to cover the costs of the funeral, as his sister explained. They raised a total of $23,000. Authorities have not said what caused the house fire, only that it was accidental.
