Breathtaking moment man ran to catch baby thrown from burning third-floor apartment (Video)


A breath taking video of the moment a 28-year old man helped save a baby thrown down a burning apartment has gone viral.

The man identified as Phillip Blanks, a former college wide receiver and retired U.S. Marine, is being hailed as a hero after diving to catch a 3-year-old boy who was thrown down from the balcony of a burning third-floor apartment in Phoenix, Arizona, Friday, July 3, 2020.

According to Blanks, he was going for a workout with a friend who lived next door to the apartment when he heard the screaming and quickly rushed to the building to catch a young child he says was “twirling like a helicopter” as he fell through the air.

“People were screaming, ‘There are kids up there’ and to throw the kids down. I saw another guy was standing there ready to catch the boy, but he didn’t look like he was going to do it, so I stepped in front of him.”

Thankfully, he caught the boy and brought him to safety, the news outlet reported.


The toddler and his 8-year-old sister suffered critical injuries but their 30-year-old mother died in the blaze, authorities told the Arizona Republic.
