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.
