Today a woman with severe mental illness died tragically by lighting herself on fire at a convenience store gas pump.
Kasey Morgan, the store manager, immediately shut off the pump and ran to the scene where she tried to save the woman's life with a hand-held fire extinguisher. Two customers tried, too.
Ms Morgan's actions exemplify the quick thinking and raw courage that is needed in a crisis. The woman in flames was beyond saving, but her rescuers could not know this, and without prompt action, this grisly situation could have ended in an explosion, with additional lives lost.
Kasey and companions, our thoughts are with you tonight
