Batman and Captain America are heroes today after saving a cat from a house fire, ABC News reported September 9.
The two super-heroes were entertaining children and veterans at a Milton, West Virginia event over the weekend at the American Legion. The men notices smoke coming out of a nearby house in the 1100 block of Church Street in Milton.
Batman and Captain America both took off into the fire after breaking down a door and breaking a window to get into the house. The fire was so bad that neither man could make it far into the home. Even Batman(John Buckland), and Captain American (Troy Marcum) couldn't stand the heat.
The two men were able to work together to get the cat out of the house. Captain America broke out a window, and Batman reached into the home and picked up the furry kitten. Batman then performed CPR on the cat to save its life.
The house was a total loss, and unfortunately the owner said there were two other cats that didn't survive the fire. It's amazing that any of the cats could be rescued safely.
John told The Herald-Dispatch
“When that cat woke up, it immediately started swatting and hissing at me. It had a giant bat in its face, so I couldn’t blame it."
John was a firefighter with a decade of experience. Not only did he fight fires in Georgia, he also had experience in Iraq, where he worked for the Department of Defense.
Now his job is portraying a super-hero for children's parties. John is the founder of Heroes 4 Higher, based out of West Virginia, where John teaches that kids can be heroes to their community.
Great job guys. This was an unusual "job" for a super-hero, but it's great you were close by and were able to save one of the cats.
