WYNANTSKILL - A community steps up as a family heals.
It was two weeks ago when a fire forced a mother to make some quick decisions to save her children.
The memories of that night still haunt Karli Sydor.
She had no choice but to drop her children out a second story window to save them from flames and smoke.
They all survived.
And today, they are overwhelmed by the love and support from the Wynantskill community, including the generous actions of one seven year old boy.
A young man of few words, but his actions speak louder.
When 7-year-old Sammy McCrea heard that his friend and classmate Peyton lost his home in a fire, he wanted to help.
Sammy just had his 1st communion, and got $300 from family and friends.
Sammy gave it all to the Sydors
It's one of many kind gestures that has Peyton’s mom, Karli in tears.
It was just before 2 a.m. when she woke up to a nightmare.
