Toastworthy Teens - Marcos Ugarte

Marcos Ugarte, Rescuer

14-year-old Marcos Ugarte doesn't consider himself a hero; he says "I think anyone would have done what I did."

Well, I beg to differ. When his neighbor's home caught on fire, Marcos got a ladder, climed to the burning home's second floor and rescued a trapped 8-year-old boy by pulling him through the window.

Sure, we'd all like to hope that in the same situation we'd have both Marcos' courage and his presence of mind, but I think young Cory Ma is pretty lucky that Marcos is the person living next door!

Do you know a toast-worthy teen you’d like to see featured here at BWATE?
