A mother in South Korea has thrown her three children out of a fourth story apartment to awaiting crowds below after her building caught fire.
A desperate South Korean mother was forced to throw her small children from a fourth-storey window as flames engulfed her apartment.
Smoke billowed out the window of the Pyeongtaek apartment on Saturday as the women cried for help.
A small crowd gathered below as emergency services scrambled and quickly devised a bold rescue plan.
Servicemen and woman from a local US Osan Air Base joined the aid effort by spreading blankets to catch the young family.
Out of time and options the 30-year old mother held one of her children outside the window – its tiny legs flailing.
The crowd screamed as the tiny first child plummeted into the blanket below - safe and unharmed.
The mother repeated the process two more times before it was her turn to jump.
Remarkably the entire family survived without injury, foreign media reports.
