Father throws baby from burning building

BBC video here.

Oh my. With no one ready to catch the child I can only imagine the man’s desparation.

I’ve no sound here, but according to this mornings paper there was a policeman waiting to catch the kid. Still, a tense moment all round.

There is a better gallery of pictures here - amazing. How much would that kid have weighed for the catcher?

Wow. I wonder if the parents made it out.

Wet finger in the air - probably about five times its true weight figuring the force needed to decelerate it over about a metre and a half and considering the distance it’s fallen.

Wow. Thank goodness the little guy was wearing a jumper.
