A Texas man was reportedly Tasered by police after trying to run into a burning home to save his infant son.

The fire broke out at the grandparents' home in San Antonio on Sunday. The grandparents pulled one boy to rescue, but soon realized his 8-month-old brother was still trapped inside, Kens5.com reports.

When the boys' father arrived on the scene, he tried repeatedly to enter the burning home. Police held him back and finally resorted to using a Taser on him for his own safety, according to officials.

The infant died in the fire.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
