Montara Meadows server nominated for Carnegie Award
Khalilah Landing has long been a resident favorite at Montara Meadows in Las Vegas, Nevada. Now she is being honored by the city of Las Vegas for her heroism after saving a local man from a burning house.
Landing was driving home from the senior living community after work when she noticed smoke spilling out of a house she was passing. She immediately checked to see if anyone was inside, breaking a window and yelling to anyone who might be in need of help. That was when she heard a faint scream come from the back of the house.
Quickly hopping the fence and heading to the back patio, Landing found a man who appeared to be in critical condition. Jumping to action, Landing called 911 and began to apply first aid before pulling the man away from the burning house and keeping him stable until police arrived.
Landing did not think twice before reacting, which is why she is being nominated for the Carnegie Award. The prestigious award is reserved for individuals who risk their lives to save others in extraordinary situations.
