What happened when a New York City father trapped in a burning building decided to throw his two infants out the window?
From NBC News:
A father threw his twin baby boys from the third floor of a burning building in the Bronx early Wednesday after screaming “somebody help me catch this baby,” and the infants were caught and brought to safety.
Everdean Codner told NBC 4 New York that he and his wife woke to the smell of smoke and heard noise in the hallway of the home on East 220th Street. He opened the window and saw “flames gushing out” below, he said.
The family tried to climb down the fire escape, but could not make it with the 11-month-old boys, Codner said.
