UPDATE on the pizza delivery man who saves 5 children from burning home.

A pizza deliveryman saved five children from a burning building in Lafayette, Louisiana. Nicholas Bostic, 25, ran into the home on July 11th and took four kids out, then returned for a six-year-old and jumped out a window with her.

Eyes and lungs already burning from the heat, it was at that moment a coughing and shaking Seionna said her six-year-old sister Kaylani, nicknamed 'Baby K,' was still trapped in the inferno.

The hero then ran back inside and searched for the missing kid, grabbed her and jumped out the broken window on the second floor while shielding her.

Holding his breath, Bostic scooped up the crying child and felt his way back up the staircase, unable to see anything through the thick black smoke other than a small rectangle of light coming from the rooms upstairs. 

Bostic was severely injured in the outrageous rescue and collapsed immediately afterwards, having suffered smoke inhalation, burns to several parts of his body and a major laceration on his arm after the window break and subsequent fall. 

Lafayette Police Department's Lt. Randy Sherer said: '[Bostic's] selflessness during this incident is inspiring. What he doesn't understand is his actions weren't ordinary, they were extraordinary.

Bostic is recovering from injuries and the community has raised $30,000 for his care

Update: Nick's cousin Richard started a gofundme page to help with his medical bills and he's got quite a few, after jumping out a window with the 6 year old girl.

As of this writing, more than $540,000 has been donated!!!!! Here's the link:
