and he risked his own life to save the life of a family he didn’t know. This gentleman is a real hero. Not only did Pasborg save this family, but he also spent hundreds of dollars worth of food and clothing for the family after their devastating tragedy. Thank you, Ryan Pasborg, for your generosity and compassion. It doesn’t go unnoticed.

the temperature outside was below zero, so he quickly put the kids in his truck so they could stay warm. He then went back into the house to find the children’s mother. Pasborg traveled into the house on his hands and knees again and went deeper. He soon found the mother lying on the floor. She was severely burned and struggling to breathe. After Pasborg got her outside, he noticed she was unresponsive and quit breathing. He began performing CPR on the mother until she gasped for air.

Sheriff’s Deputy Jason Mower was impressed with Pasborg’s bravery and courage. “This is the first time in nearly 15 years of law enforcement that I’ve ever heard of a total stranger truly going above and beyond in a way and in a situation that many wouldn’t have dared to face,” Mower says.
