When an apartment fire broke out in Des Moines, Iowa in the middle of the night recently, residents were desperate to get their children out safely. With the multi-story building in flames, parents did what they had to do to help their kids to safety.
“Before we had arrived, there were people in one of the apartments tossing down their kids,” explains LieutenantRick Thomaswith the Des Moines Fire Department. “Police department caught three of them and then when fire crews arrived, they pulled one or two more out.”
While it probably looked like a scary scene, the children were all fine and no injuries were reported in the fire.
