'I still have my LeBron bobblehead!' Superstar keepsake survives fire

LeBron James Fan Makes Incredible Discovery After Fire

FAIRLAWN, Ohio- A woman lost virtually everything to a fire late Monday morning, but she's grateful her prized keepsake somehow survived.

Sheila Shuttlesworth kept good care of her LeBron James bobblehead. She got it during the Cavaliers' star's rookie season and she kept it safely stored in the original box ever since.

Sheila and her son, Charles Williams, were both working Monday when they learned of the fire.

They rushed home to find most of their possessions in ashes, outside the apartment. Charles composed himself enough to sift through the debris and was shocked to find the LeBron bobblehead, virtually unscathed.

He couldn't wait to show it to his mother. "Actually, when I showed it to her which was like the craziest part of the story she was like, 'Oh, my God,'" he said. Williams said finding the LeBron bobblehead made a horrible day a little better.

Sheila and Charles want to thank neighbors and friends for helping them through the fire. Investigators still don't know the cause of the fire but say working fire detectors kept it from damaging more apartments in the complex.

As for Sheila, finding the bobblehead made all the difference. She said, "It touched me how that is still there. I've lost everything literally and I still have my LeBron bobblehead. Who could ask for more?"
