Hero actress: Kate Winslet saves Richard Branson's 90-year-old mom from fire

Oscar winning actress Kate Winslet has become a heroine after saving Richard Branson’s 90-year-old mother from a fire that destroyed the Branson’s island holiday home.

A tropical cyclone with winds of up to 90 miles per hour landed in the middle of the night, and a lightning bolt hit the billionaire entrepreneur’s home.

Kate Winslet was one of 20 guests staying at Richard Branson’s house on his privately-owned Necker Island, along with her boyfriend Louis Dowler, and her two children Mia 10, and seven-year-old Joe.

Reportedly the actress picked up Richard Branson’s mother in her arms and led her away from the fire in the early hours of yesterday (22.08.11).

“Many thanks to Kate Winslet. It was she who carried my mother out of the house. She swept her up into her arms and got them out of the house as fast as possible.-he told The Sun newspaper about Kate’s good deed.

The Virgin founder Richard Branson than added about the destroying fire.

“The main house is destroyed and the fire is not yet completely out. My office was based in the house and I have lost thousands of photographs and my notebooks which is very sad. But all family and friends are well, which in the end is all that really matters.”

Credits go to Kate Winslet for saving an old lady’s life.
