Cincinnati Firefighters Recount Rescue of Children

Cincinnati (OH) firefighters rescued four children from a three-alarm fire at a multi-family dwelling on Saturday.

When firefighters arrived, they found the children hanging out a third-floor window. Their mother was crying for help and passing them to whomever could reach, according to a WLWT report (http://bit.ly/xaKfIE).

Video of the rescue is available on YouTube at http://youtu.be/nQlTQYs5d6A. In the video, shot on scene, firefighters can been seen on ladders rescuing the children.
