A California man who goes by the moniker "Robin Hood" made a daring rescue this week during a residential fire in Los Angeles.
The man, who does not wish to be identified, has a history of philanthropy that he's performed under the nickname "Robin Hood 702." He spoke to ABC News on the condition his real name would not be used.
Robin Hood was driving along a road in Culver City On the night of Aug. 21 when he noticed smoke coming from an apartment complex and jumped into action.
"My girl was very upset I was doing it. She said what in the hell are you doing? I said maybe I could help somebody," Robin Hood told ABC News today.
As he arrived at the building he saw flames coming out of the second floor of the two-story building and ran quickly toward the fire. He said the side of the building was engulfed in flames and spreading quickly.
"I started screaming and banging on all the doors to wake everybody up and let them know there was a fire," he said. "I went up there and there was a guy screaming who said he couldn't get out. I shouted to call 911 and I was screaming for a garden hose."
Robin Hood said that other residents emerged from the building and began helping, tossing him a hose, turning on the water, getting fire extinguishers, and helping to rescue the man who was trapped in his apartment. Finally, someone brought out a blanket that Robin Hood soaked and threw on the floor over the fire so the man could get out of his apartment.
"I kept screaming buddy I’m going to get you out of here," Robin Hood said. "I grabbed him out of the doorway and walked him down the steps and by the time I hit the bottom of the steps four to five fire trucks showed up."
The firefighters who arrived asked Robin Hood what had happened.
"I said, 'I got this,' and they said, 'who are you?' and I said, 'I'm just Robin Hood 702,'" he said. "It was an exhilarating and incredible feeling to do all this."
Neighbor Douglas Cobb told ABC News station KABC in Los Angeles that Robin Hood was a hero.
"Superman right. Robin Hood gives back to the poor, but he saved everybody's life here," said Cobb, who lives in the apartment below the fire.
