This was from 2016, but it’s doing the rounds again. The video is absolutely terrifying – for a number of reasons. A family in Russia jumps from the top floor balcony to a blanket being stretched out by civilians. Both the mother and 2 small children were uninjured, but the father was transported to hospital with non life threatening injuries.
WARNING: You may find this video disturbing as the first people to “jump” are young children.
WATCH THIS! Incredible footage from Russia shows a large crowd of people gathered below the burning apartment to catch the family in peril.
