TYLER, TX (KSLA) – A Texas father is thankful to be alive and his son is credited for saving his life.

Friday afternoon November 19th, the son noticed that their Tyler, Texas home was on fire so he rushed to get inside and get his dad.

The boy had to drag his father, who is wheelchair bound, out of the living room. His dad suffers from Parkinson's disease and uses oxygen tanks to breathe.

Moments after the two got out safely, those oxygen tanks began to explode.
