Firefighters attend woman's graduation after saving her life 10 years ago

CHICAGO -- Two Chicago firefighters attended the college graduation of a woman whose life they saved a decade ago.

There were hugs, tears and lots of smiles Friday night as Jasmine Doss was reunited with John Patton and Richard Rosado. They rescued Doss from a fire after someone threw a Molotov cocktail at her Englewood home. Patton found the unconscious girl and handed her off to Rosado.

"I was supposed to be there. John was supposed to see me and Jasmine was supposed to get saved and she was supposed to live," Rosado said.

"I'm so grateful, I'm so happy. And I don't mean to cry, I don't mean to cry. I'm just so grateful for today," Doss said.
