Cockatiel's squawks help woman escape fire

The Canadian Press
March 22, 2008

Westside -- A squawking cockatiel is being credited with awakening a woman in time to escape a Westside mobile-home fire. The caged bird, named Buddy, began to squawk as the home filled with smoke early Thursday.
Beryl Itani of Emergency Social Services said the woman suffered some smoke inhalation. Darlene Harris, 49, was treated at Kelowna General Hospital and released.
Ms. Harris told CHBC News earlier she had received threats after telling a reporter that the area's mobile home parks would be sold off for development.



there are many other reasons... but that is one very good reason!....

yeah that kinda annoyed me too... but i would assume the tiel is fine, it probably would have said otherwise, about it being a hero,giving up its own life etc....
but there was none of that so dare say it would have been fine....

would have been nice to know for sure though
