An Orthodox priest rescued two people from a building engulfed in flames in Constanţa. Assisted by two off-duty firefighters, father Gică Silitră took a 60-year-old woman in his arms and evacuated a 65-year-old man.

The two people are parishioners of the church pastored by Fr Silitră, which is in the vicinity of the buildings on Iederii Street (Constanta district Km 4-5), which caught fire Tuesday evening.

“The church is close to the scene, and after the evening service, the faithful who were at the church announced to me: Father, there is smoke outside. I went out and saw that nuisance in our parish and I went to help with what was needed,” the priest declared for a local publication.

Father Gică did not imagine that he would play an essential role in the rescue operation.
