The driver rescued the baby while on his rounds.

A delivery driver heroically seven-week-old baby from a house fire in the UK.
 
According to the Daily Mail, 26-year-old Habeel Khan was making his deliveries in the neighborhood when he saw smoke coming from a house.
 
A woman with two young children cried out that her baby was still in the burning house, at which point Khan ran into the house with the woman to rescue the baby. He then stayed with the family until firefighters and paramedics arrived, after which he finished the rest of his deliveries.
 
"I don't think I have done anything heroic at all to be honest,' said Khan afterwards. "Thankfully, everyone was okay in the end and the family are back in the house."
 
He has been praised for his actions and was recently awarded Colleagues' Colleague of the Year at the Being Asda Awards 2019.
 
Asda's senior vice president of operations Anthony Hemmerdinger said: 'What Habeel did was remarkable and it's not something we would recommend that our colleagues do, however it's clear that in this instance his instinct kicked in and he did a remarkable job.'
