A fast-acting Georgia firefighter caught a baby that a desperate father dropped out of the second story window of a burning building.
Firefighter Robert Sutton was among the first DeKalb County firefighters to arrive on the scene of an apartment fire in the Glenwood neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia on Wednesday when he heard a man shouting from above.
‘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,’ Sutton told Fox 5 Atlanta.
‘I just said “Drop him.” He did and I am blessed to have been in a position to catch the baby.’
Sutton, who grew up near the apartment complex, added that, ‘It was my first time in a situation like that.’
In the video, Sutton — a 10-year DeKalb County firefighter veteran — can be seen enveloped in grey smoke, standing underneath the window waiting for the baby to fall. Behind him, a second firefighter rushes over to act as backup.
Once the baby lands in Sutton’s arms, he pauses for a second to cradle the child to his chest and then hurries to get the baby away from the smoke.
