Hero Honeymooners Rescue Sleeping Babies from Burning Nursery in Spain: ‘Instinct Took Over’

Picture it: you and your spouse are on your honeymoon in Europe, you see a burning building, you decide to be heroes and run inside through the smoke and you end up in a room with panicking nurses, 20 sleeping infants, and no one speaks English.

Incredibly, that was the situation Rhode Island honeymooners David Squillante and Doran Smith found themselves in last month in Barcelona.

The newlywed 38-year-olds were on their way to tour a park when they saw a group of women standing around panicking next to a doorway, out of which was wafting thick smoke.

“I saw a flame coming out of the doorway, next to the door that these women had come out of,” Smith said. “So, I said ‘Oh my God there’s a fire.’”

Who knows what possessed the non-Spanish speaking honeymooners to run inside the burning building, as there was nothing on the exterior that hinted at the precious cargo within; they could have just been running into a normal apartment building.

They went in all the same, and though neither Squillante nor Smith understood what was probably being explained to them, they found themselves communicating in a “universal language” before long.

They entered a room that had not caught fire and realized they were in a nursery of all places.

“Instinct took over,” Squillante said. “I found myself looking at 15, 20 babies sleeping, and immediately just kind of lined everyone up and we started grabbing them, putting them into the crib. It was like probably like ten minutes, but it seemed like an instant, but it turned out to be OK.”

After everyone was out safely, the pair continued their honeymoon. According to an NBC affiliate they went right on to take the park tour they had planned.

People Magazine reports that Squillante is now exploring the possibilities to be a volunteer firefighter in their home town of Bristol.
