It’s a great story, and who could blame the Los Angeles Times for the line in their story today about the Sheriff’s deputies catching two kids as they were dropped from the second floor of a burning apartment building:
Trapped by a predawn fire, a desperate mother dangled her infant daughter out of a second-story window, and then dropped her ó into the hands of a sheriff’s deputy.
The father then dropped his 9-year-old son, Jermaine Carter, and Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Jeffrey Kim caught him too.
The immaculate receptions were made in Watts about 3 a.m. today at the Imperial Courts housing project on East Imperial Highway. The drop was about 10 feet, authorities said.
