Henry Ford hailed as hero in blaze

San Clemente, CA. -- A 59 year old surf legend ran into a burning building and woke up a mother, giving her time to get herself and her baby to safety, Thursday afternoon in San Clemente
About 4 p.m. Monday local surf legend Henry Ford was driving west on Avenida Palizada when he noticed flames shooting out of the roof which was fully engulfed in flames.
Before Henry could even come to a complete stop, he was out the door and rushing to help.
"I thougth quickly and acted even more quickly", Thanks to the quick response of the fire dept. and Henry's selfless actions two children were saved from certain disaster.. "And as i was running into the building I called emergency.’ So I was dialing 911 and running into the house at the same time," Henry said.

Luckily, the front door was open as Henry ran inside and alerted a woman who had just put her daughter down for a nap. Otherwise the young mother may have found out about the fire too late.
After Henry got the woman outside, he kept her cool and asked the woman an important question.
"’Lady is there anyone else in the house?’ And she finally looked at Henry and said, ‘My Children"’ And I thought, ‘Oh my god, there's children in there,’" Henry said.
The mother ran upstairs and got her baby out safely.
Henrys friends aren't hesitating to call him a hero. But Henry was quoted as saying he was only following his instincts.
"I don't think it was that big of a deal that I did that. I mean, I think most people would've done it if they saw a house on fire," Henry said.
Henry relocated to the area about twenty years ago and has been an assett tothe community and is an hailed as a surfing icon from the south bay area. he was recently inducted into the surfing hall of fame. through his generous efforts and selfless act two children have Henry to thank for their lives.

59? Hmmm?

Can we get rid of those clowns on the home page? Get Pretzel to take a picture of the week or something.

'Sticks', Obviously, you're not from Manhattan Beach where Henry Ford attended Mira Cost High. According to to the school, Henry graduated 'Cum Laude' in 1976. In the Encyclopedia of Surfing, Henry, a proven Legend, is 53 years of age as of today. I wish San-O Daze had a research department to clarify their misinformation.

if only more were like henry said...

I remember that Pan Am 707 that went into the drink after experiencing some mechanical failure on takeoff from LAX back in '63.

Henry was first on the scene and was credited with pulling close to 20 survivors out of the flaming wreckage before it sank.

He is a true hero.

Everything is correct except Ford is about 82 years old. He will celebrate his birthday on July 4th of course.

All that clean living has left him looking young and vibrant, hence the confusion.

'More Like Henry', that fateful flight UAL 66 to Denver back in '63 encountered pilot error upon climb out. FO misunderstood cabin warning bell, requested torn arounnd proceedure, then crashed when all power failed. Subsequent the the tragedy, Henry felt UAL 66 was operating with defective generators.
266 crashed 11 miles offhsore in deep water. Thanks to Henry 30 people were rescued.

Let's see. Since I graduated with Henry from Mira Costa in 1957, that means he was only 8 (if he is 59 now...) or only 2 (if he is 53 now).... amazing. I was one of the youngest grads at 16, and had no idea of Henry's advanced development in his infant years! Henry is 69 if he is a day... but he did miss our 50th reunion last October. Find a 1957 MCHS yearbook and look for yourself.

and one more thing: Bruce Brown filmed two 1957 Mira Costa graduates in 1964, all over the world. They were Freddie Pfahler and Henry. Look at the film (Endless Summer), then ask yourself: does Henry look from 9 to 15 years old? That trip was 7 years after our graduation, so Henry was about 25. Happy 70th to Henry coming up soon.

Shameful apology: it was "Slippery When Wet," not "Endless Summer"....and like Bruce says, he filmed it in 1958, only one year after Pfahler and Henry Ford (and I) graduated from he is about 19 in the film in Hawaii. Sorry for confusing Brown's titles.... Slippery was his first, according to his website.....

Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no back up.
Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?
