A father dropped his child from the second-storey window of a burning building. Fortunately DeKalb County firefighter Robert Sutton, who was among the first to arrive at the spot, was in position to catch the baby. The incident occurred after an apartment in Atlanta, Georgia caught fire on Wednesday.

He was a little guy, so when I heard his father yelling “Help,” and saw him hanging out the window with the baby in his arms, I just went into action. I just did what any of the other firefighters out here would have done. I just said, “Drop him.” He did and I am blessed to have been in a position to catch the baby.
