There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

Over the weekend, a hero emerged.
We thought we'd never know the identity of the man in the Dodgers cap who ran into an inferno in Fresno, California to save an elderly man.
But now he has been identified as local Tom Artiaga!
"It's just an instinct, you know? It's just an instinct, you see someone and you just help out people, you know?"
That instinct is NOT something to take for granted! We saw the video, and not everyone braved those flames! Tom says:
"I was scared, you know? I'm sure anybody would be scared, but it's a life, hey try to help him."
Wow. Selfless AND humble.
According to his son, Tom didn't even tell his family about the incident! He just came home from work like it was a normal day!
We just wish there were more people in the world like you, Tom Artiaga!
Hero Tom Artiaga has been reunited with the man he saved Robert Wells! See their emotional reunion (below)!
