    Thumbs up Baby Tossed Out Window to Safety

    Someone can move this if they want it in a different forum...

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,178786,00.html

    A mother trapped in a burning third-floor apartment prayed and then dropped her 1-month-old son out a window to the crowd below. The infant was caught safely by a man who plays catcher for his employer's baseball team.

    The rescuer gave the baby mouth-to-mouth resuscitation a skill he picked up two decades ago as a teenage lifeguard and the mother was rescued by firefighters. Both were treated at a hospital and released.

    Tracinda Foxe, 30, was cornered by smoke and flames in the Bronx apartment on Wednesday when she went to the window with son Eric Guzman.

    "I said, 'God, please save my son,'" Foxe told the Daily News in Thursday editions. "I prayed that someone would catch him and save his life."

    I have watched this replayed on the news about a dozen times and it just chokes me up.

    Can you imagine what was running through mama's mind? Just seeing all those people down below wanting to help, just really moves me.

    Thank you IdahoMom. No matter where it is posted, it is still an inspiring story. Thank you.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
