Video Shows Firefighter Catch Child Thrown From 3rd Story Balcony During Apartment Fire
January 16, 2018
A family of 12, including newborn twins, made it out of a raging apartment fire in Decatur, Georgia.
The father was the only one injured after he sustained burns while getting all of his children our of the apartment from the third-story balcony.
“Failure is not an option, failure is never an option when it comes to protecting family,” Lance Ragland told Fox5.
One by one, Ragland sent his family down a ladder where firefighters caught the children.
Dramatic, HD helmet-camera video captured the moment DeKalb County Fire Captain Scott Stroup caught one of the children thrown to safety by Ragland.
The family lost everything in the fire and are now staying with family until they can get back on their feet.
Ragland says he is just happy none of his children were injured at all in the fire.
