Mother and Child Leap From Second-Floor California Balcony

A mother and her young son were hospitalized after leaping from a balcony to escape a house fire in Rancho Cucamonga late Tuesday, reports NBC Los Angeles.

The mother dropped her 5-year-old child to a neighbor below before jumping from the home on the 8900 block of Reales Street at about 10:20 p.m., a Rancho Cucamonga Fire Department spokesman said.

Unfortunately, one of family’s dogs couldn’t be saved. A FEMA service dog that belonged to the woman’s partner, who works with the Los Angeles Fire Department but was not there at the time of the fire, was trapped in a kennel downstairs.
