Booker Rescues Woman from House Fire

Newark Mayor Cory Booker (D) "was taken to a hospital tonight for treatment of smoke inhalation he suffered trying to rescue his next-door neighbors from their burning house," the Newark Star Ledger reports.

Newark Fire Director Fateen Ziyad said Booker recounted that he yelled at his security guards to release him when he heard a woman yelling, saying: "She is going to die, she is going to die." The mayor then crossed through smoke and flames to grab the woman and carry her in his arms out of the building.
