VIDEO: Firefighter catches child tossed from burning building
DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. (WZTV) —
Amazing video of heroic firefighters saving a child has been released by Local 1492, the union representing firefighters from DeKalb County, Georgia.
The dramatic video was recorded by a helmet cam worn by one of the firefighters responding to an apartment fire in Decatur on January 3rd.
Although the heroic men and women saved multiple lives during the blaze, video of a father throwing one of his young children down to Captain Scott Stroup was among the more dramatic moments.
According to FOX 5 Atlanta, eight children were saved as the father and mother dropped the kids from a ladder, one an infant, down to the arms of firefighters. The fire displaced 80 people.
