Not all heroes wear capes.
2 children, aged 3 and 10, had to jump for their lives from a window into the arms of rescuers during a fire in France.
The 2 young children had to jump for their lives from the window of a third-story apartment to escape a fire.
The entire incident was caught on camera.
According to reports, the fire broke out on Tuesday in an apartment in the French city of Grenoble, which trapped 2 boys, who are 3 and 10 years old.
In the vide, black plumes of smoke can be seen billowing from the windows as onlookers screamed from below.
A small child is then lowered by another person out of the window until he is dropped into the arms of rescuers.
Later on, the second child did the same thing.
The boys, who fell about 33 feet, were hospitalized for smoke inhalation after the rescue was made.
According to reports, 17 residents of the building were also hospitalized following the blaze.
4 people that caught the boys were also brought to the hospital.
Athoumani Walid, a local student who caught one of the kids, said:
We didn’t know what to do. We wanted to break the door but it wasn’t possible. When they jumped, fear disappeared. What mattered was to catch them.
Walid said that the entire neighborhood is filled with immigrants and the incident just brought them together.
He went on:
We are told it’s a ‘sensitive’ neighborhood, but yesterday we showed we are here for each other, and we save each other.
Such a good thing to witness and luckily no one was severely injured in the incident.
