U.S. soldiers and airmen saved the lives of three children and their mother from a burning building on Friday. The service members, assigned to Osan Airbase in South Korea were at a shopping center when they heard the commotion. They saw a building billowing smoke, and a woman holding a baby at a window, several floors from the ground. The troops didn’t hesitate as they gathered a blanket to spread out to catch the family before they were consumed by the fire. The children all landed safely, and the mother sustained non-life threatening injuries, but all are alive due to the quick thinking, selflessness, and personal courage of the U.S. troops.
Additional footage of the rescue can be seen in this Korean news broadcast:
