Former Badger Frank 'the Tank' Kaminsky helped a woman in his Charlotte apartment building during an evacuation on Thursday according to the Charlotte Observer .

The sound of the fire alarm alerted residents in Kaminsky's building to evacuate due to a bomb threat, so he paused his video game, grabbed a box of Cheez-Its and began the trek down 49 flights of stairs when he came across a mother who was trying to evacuate with her baby, a dog and various other items.

Kaminsky helped the woman by carrying her baby the rest of the way down 44 flights of stairs.

The mother shared a photo on Instagram, thanking the Charlotte Hornets player for his help.

Kaminksy said he's lived in the building for four years and knows the mother he helped out.
