Mom throws kids to safety after flat on fire

A Saudi woman threw her little children down to safety from her second floor apartment before jumping down to escape a blaze that engulfed the flat.

The kids were caught by scores of men who gathered below and shouted to the woman to throw the boys to save their lives.

A YouTube film showed the woman dangled the children one after another before easing her grip and sending them down to the human shield.

Saudi newspapers which published the film said the woman later jumped and that she and her children were not hurt in the night fire in the Western town of Medinah.
