  This made me tear up!!!    Our friends at 6abc have the story:  There was a fire at Brith Sholom House on the 3900 block of Conshohocken Avenue Saturday night, when Shawn Smith, who is his mother’s caregiver, called her down 10 flights of stairs to get her out of the building.

“And then the hallways on the 10th floor started filling up with smoke. So I grabbed my mother and I threw her over my shoulder and I had to carry her down 10 flights of steps… “It was a scary situation, but I got my mother out. That was all I was concerned about,” Smith said.

Shawn was wearing a Zach Ertz jersey and no shoes when he ran down the stairs with his mother on his back!  Zach Ertz saw the story and invited him to the game!
