OKLAHOMA CITY -

A random stranger was credited for saving a woman from a house fire, but the victim said she did not even have time to thank the man.

"I just heard cracking, loud popping noises and I got up and I opened the door to my bedroom and then all this smoke came in," recalled Daisy Pando. "I just couldn't breathe anymore, I was coughing. I just wanted to get out. That's all I kept thinking, 'I need to get out! I need to get out!' and I couldn't get out."

Daisy Pando was trapped inside her burning house. She said she tried climbing out the small bathroom window, but could not do it on her own, so she began to scream for help.

An unknown hero apparently heard Pando's yelling and stopped to help. Pando said the man pulled her out window to safety before firefighters got on scene.

"He hugged me and said, 'it's going to be okay. You're okay. We got you,' and that's all I remember," Pando said.

Pando said she had no idea who the man was, but credited him with her survival. The house burned, but she made it out safely and said that was the most important thing, because she has two young children who live with her.

"I want to thank him. Either I would still be in the hospital or I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for him and that's the reason that I wanted to come out and say thank you," Pando said.
