Parents Throw Children Out Window to Save Them (VIDEO)

Parents Throw Children Out Window to Save Them (VIDEO)

The parents of three young children were forced to take drastic measures to save their family when they woke up Friday morning trapped in a house that was on fire. Surrounded by smoke and heat, they realized that the only way out was a window. With no other options and no time left, they threw their five-year-old, one-year-old, and one-month old children out the window.

Fortunately their neighbors ran to catch the children. The family escaped uninjured. “Everything was destroyed,” said Raquel Triplett. “The only thing we got out with was ourselves.”

I have also spoke with others about when my child is attending a sleepover; even a grandparents house, to make sure that child knows the best way out in case of an emergency. My friend lost 2 children when they slept over at grandmas house and a fire broke out. :(

They did what they had to do so thAT their family could survive. I have a fire plan for my family and we practice twice a month. I also have a back up set of clothes and shoes.

I have always had a fire escape plan. I keep a two story ladder that can be attached to a window for emergency exits from the upstairs of my house. Part of having a two story house is have a contingency plan for fires...

We have escape ladders in both children's bedrooms so hopefully we wouldn't have to jump!! Scary!!

Yes we do have a fire escape plan. Get the dogs out first and then ourselves. No kids here.

I have a one story house so I'd just be throwing my preschoolers out a window and they'd be fine. As a teen in my dad's house I figured I'd get out fine, but I'd probably break some bones trying to jump out my bedroom window. No fire escape plan there.
