This is the dramatic moment when a two year old was thrown from a third floor window of a burning building in Ludwigshafen, Germany. The child was safely caught by a policeman, but sadly 9 other people, including 5 children died in the blaze. 60 other people were injured in the fire, which was believed to have been started by neo-Nazis. I can't imagine the torture the parents went through having to make this decision, and it isn't known if they got out alive; but at least this lucky toddler will live to see another day.

UPDATE: The baby's parents survived, however his 2 year old brother did not.
