Woman tosses kids out window escape burning apartment

Posted: Updated:
Thanks to the help of some quick-thinking neighbors, two children were able to escape a fire threatening after being thrown out a window, three stories up.

The video was posted to YouTube Wednesday and claims the Russian woman had to take drastic action in the village of Energetic. The woman opened her window and tossed her two children out of it.

Below the window, residents had gathered to pull bedsheets tight to catch the kids. According to the YouTube description, the children, ages 13 and 4, survived the fire. Their mother did not jump and was overcome by smoke. Firefighters eventually found her in the home and she was treated for smoke inhalation.

She told officials she didn't believe the sheets would hold her weight and believed firefighters would get her in time.
