BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- Pierre Gibbons, the man who tried to rescue his neighbor from her burning Patterson Park home Monday night, is now on full life support, a family member posted on Facebook.

Jeremiah Gibbons, a Baltimore City firefighter, posted Thursday that his father is on full life support at Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center.

"Our father Pierre Gibbons is NOW ON FULL LIFE SUPPORT at Bayview intensive care unit. This is not good for his organs being that he has 70% burns to his body because the immune system is needed in so many ways right now. He is getting the best care he has an entire icu team working all the different options on him now. All that we can ask for is a prayers and that you play some Johny Cash for Dad. He needs God and US now more than ever.

He is a fighter"

Pierre Gibbons, 57, rushed inside a home on North Rose Street in September to rescue his 76-year-old neighbor from a house fire.

The cause of the fire was believed to be electrical.

The family has set up a GoFundMe Page.
