Intense Video Shows Former Marine Catching Baby Thrown From Burning Building

By Shannon Walsh

An apartment fire in South Carolina forced a mother to throw her 11-month-old baby outside a second-floor window and into the arms of a former U.S. Marine. The man said he does want praise for what he did and has decided to remain anonymous.

The flames tore through Ashford Cove apartments on Tuesday around 8pm, and multiple firetrucks and firefighters raced to the scene to help. Speaking about what caused the fire, Travis Poore, a spokesman for the Anderson Fire Department, said, "It was definitely unintentional. We are so glad that the baby was gotten out without significant injuries."
