Dad Throws Twin Babies From Burning Bronx Building

It's not what you may think! Video may be viewed here:

A father threw his twin baby boys from the third floor of a burning building in the Bronx early Wednesday after screaming, "somebody help me catch this baby," and the infants were caught and brought to safety.

Everdean Codner told NBC 4 New York that he and his wife woke to the smell of smoke and heard noise in the hallway of the home on East 220th Street. He opened the window and saw, "flames gushing out," below, he said.

The family tried to climb down the fire escape, but could not make it with the 11-month-old boys, Codner said.

"I start screaming, 'Somebody help me catch this baby,' because I wasn't going to try to, like, risk it," Codner said.

A neighbor and a relative scrambled to their aid from the ground, and caught the babies one by one, Codner said.

Codner and his wife then made their way down, he said. The babies were taken to the hospital and were expected to be fine.

Codner said he was supposed to be at work Wednesday when the fire broke out, but was home instead.

He wonders what would have happened if he wasn't there.

"Thank God for the neighbors, for the quick response," Codner said. "One thing I was thinking, 'I hope my family makes it through.'"

Brometheus, you didn't tell me I had, "Brom," instead of, "From," in the original title. I just caught it

That had to be hard as hell to trust another person to catch the kids. I'm glad this story didn't end with anyone going splat because some asshole can't catch. Glad everyone was safe.
