Basketball player Frank Kaminsky of the Charlotte Hornets proved that he is much more than an athlete – he is also a good Samaritan.
The 25-year-old athlete played the Fornite video game and ate Cheez-Its in his high-rise buildings in North Carolina on Thursday afternoon, when the fire alarm suddenly came to an end.
When the residents of the building were told that they had to evacuate in response to a bomb threat, he rushed to the stairs.
On his way down, he saw a neighbor frantically trying to evacuate while he was carrying a baby, holding her dog and running with a few other things in her arms.

The 6 & # 39; 11 Charlotte Hornets Center says that his apartment has been evacuated in response to a bomb threat on Thursday
That is when Kaminsky took the day into custody and the baby brought down 49 steps.
& # 39; I had to finish 49 stories because they turned off the elevators. Instead of taking my keys and my wallet, I grabbed a box of Cheez-Its for the long journey down, "he said.
"About three floors away there was a woman with a baby and a dog and a few other things she had to wear, so I helped her carry the baby", he added to the Charlotte Observer.
For Kaminsky, a helping hand was a good idea.
He added that he lived in the building for the past four years and knew the mother who was in need.
I am but a good Samaritan, not a hero, Kaminsky said.
The bomb threat was one of the many that were brought in to Charlotte on Thursday.
"About three floors away there was a lady with a baby and a dog and a few other things she had to wear, so I just helped her carry the baby," he said.
He went to Twitter to talk about the bizarre experience with the words: "I do not think I would carry a 50-foot baby downstairs today during a bomb alert on my building today & # 39;
He joked that he had made a new friend by draining the baby boy down the stairs and training them well & # 39;
Mother Liz Prakash joked that she was wearing his box of Cheez-Its and he was carrying her baby
He and his fellow highrise neighbors had been stranded on the street for a while and were eventually let in after no bomb was discovered.
He joked that he waited until the elevators were reactivated before he went back inside.
& # 39; I do not walk back 49 floors. That's just not something that will happen, "he said.
Then he twittered: & # 39; I did not think I would carry a 50-foot baby today during a bomb alert on my building today. But it happened. How was your day? & # 39;
Mother Liz Prakash thanked Kaminsky by placing a sweet Instagram of the 6 # giant who wore her baby boy.
& # 39; Big exclamation to [Kaminsky] for carrying a sleeping baby of 44 stairs, "she wrote.
