VIDEO: Tulsa Officer Catches Baby Tossed from Apartment Fire
A Tulsa, Okla., officer caught a baby that was dropped to him from a balcony as residents desperately tried to escape the smoke and flames shooting from an apartment fire early this morning.
Dozens of residents were displaced from the fire at the Whispering Oaks Apartments about 6:30 a.m. No deaths were reported. One person was taken to the hospital, the Tulsa police told the Tulsa World newspaper..
Tulsa police officers leaving a morning squad meeting saw the fire and "immediately ran over and started banging on doors trying to get folks out," said Cpl. Brian Collum.
As heavy smoke crept near her apartment, Adrienne Smith and her boyfriend dropped a toddler from a balcony into the waiting arms of Tulsa Police Officer Alan Franks.
