Boy dropped from third-floor window, caught by fireman

Massachusetts – Firefighters in Boston rescued at least 15 people from a six-alarm blaze in the city’s Roxbury section, including a 6-year-old boy who was dropped from a third-floor window. Herbert and Judith Lamb were forced to drop their 6-year-old grandson, Xavier, from the window of their third-floor apartment into the arms of a waiting firefighter. “Thank God I caught him. I’ve never had to do that before, and I hope I never have to do it again,” Boston Fire Lt. Glenn McGillivray, told The Boston Globe. He said firefighters knew Judith Lamb wouldn’t be able to hold on to the child until more help arrived, so they told her to drop him. Then they used a ladder to rescue her.  more
