In South Korea, a video emerged showing a dramatic rescue of three children escaping a burning building and being saved by U.S. servicemen. A mother dropped her children from a fourth story window. It was the only way out as a fire ripped through a South Korean apartment block last Saturday [Apr 30].

Three children, aged one, three and four, were caught in blankets held by U.S. soldiers down below who were passing by and stopped to help. Then the 30-year-old mother jumped herself. 

Miraculously, they all survive without even a scratch.

"She was out of the window, holding the baby out of the window and everybody started getting blankets from this shop here," said Sgt. Michael Henry, U.S. military. "And the lady just started dropping her babies down - you could tell she was scared she didn't want to," Sgt. Melanie Scott said.

The children's father thanked the military Monday. 

"I don't know how I would explain my thanks because I was so surprised, I see the people gathering here to rescue my family, especially the military," said Prince Enyioko, father.

The family from Nigeria met the soldiers who saved their lives - the children looked unaffected by what had happened.

A terrifying ordeal that thankfully has a happy ending.
