Forget a suit. Newark Mayor Cory Booker should wear tights and a cape to work.
The politician is in the news today because he rescued a neighbor from her burning house last night, entering the residence against the advice of his security team, carrying the young woman through flames and suffering second-degree burns in the process.
"I actually wasn't thinking," Booker said on CBS This Morning, detailing how he jumped through the kitchen window and: "When I got there and couldn't find her in all the smoke, looked behind me and saw the kitchen really erupting with flames all over the ceiling, that's when I had very clear thoughts that I'm not going to get out of this place alive and got... very religious.
"It is a very, very scary thing. And I'd like to say that I, at that point I was feeling so courageous, but honestly, it was terrifying, and to look back, you can see nothing but flames. Look in front of you see nothing but blackness."
