Stacey & Mike's Happy News: Man Saves Mom & Kids From Burning Apartment

Thanks to Lance in NE Portland for sending us this one...

A woman and her kids are safe after a fire broke out on May 18 at an apartment complex in Phoenix. The fire happened just after 4 a.m. and Claudia Jimenez says she had to throw herself and her two daughters from a second-story unit to escape the flames.

Joseph Collins lives in a tent on the canal behind the apartment building and he knew what he had to do because he was at the right place, at the right time. "The lady was screaming and crying," Collins said. "I told her to hand me the babies down. She was like, ‘Don’t drop them.’ She handed me one at a time, [I] safely put them down. I told her to come on down. She jumped down."

Claudia says she saved what she could and was grateful for the hero who was there for them.

She moved in less than two weeks ago after struggling to get back on her feet. Her family set up a GoFundMe account to help her financially after the fire.
