90-Year-Old Man Rescues His Wheelchair Bound Wife…WOW


Arthur Schneider, a 90-year-old World War II veteran, came home earlier this month to find his home on fire.

His wife Rosemary suffers from Parkinson’s disease and is confined to a wheelchair.

She was inside their home, alone.


The Schneiders have been married for 68 years. They met as pen pals when he was stationed on Guam with the Navy during the war. They married six months after he got home.

Schneider got as far as the front porch of the home before running – without the use of his cane – to get assistance from a neighbor who helped him get the chair down the stairs safely on Thursday afternoon, the New York Daily News reported.

He said: ‘I had to go back and get her. She’s part of me.

God said that when a man and a woman marry they become one flesh. Arthur and Rosemary are living proof of that.

If you a role model or a hero, you’ll do no better than Arthur Schneider.

The Schneiders will be married 69 years in October, Such said. They have nine children, 21 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.

Schneider said he has a “wonderful family and a wonderful life.”

But he doesn’t see his actions during the fire as heroic, saying, “I don’t see anything outstanding that I did.”

Arthur, you’ve made my day.
