Rescued OAP by local teenager from house fire sadly dies despite heroics

A 78-year-old woman who was pulled out of a burning house by a teenager has died.

Marcus Evans, 19, acted after seeing a police support officer outside the house which had smoke pouring from it.
He twice ran inside the house in Baglan, Neath Port Talbot, before he was able to lift the unconscious woman to safety.
The woman has since died and her next of kin have been informed.
She was initially taken to Morriston Hospital in Swansea, where she was placed in an induced coma because of her injuries following the fire on Thursday.
