On 25 July 2013 in an apartment at the Arbors at North Decatur in the Atlanta suburb of Decatur, Georgia fire broke out. Zna Gresham, a 10-year-old girl, caught a one-month-old baby named Diana whose family in desperation dropped from a second-floor window.  Zna said, “The lady upstairs, she was dropping her babies. I caught the newborn baby from falling; before it hit the ground I had caught it.” Because of the smoke and fire, the family was forced to drop their children from the window. DeKalb County Fire Battalion Chief Christopher Morrison said, “The smoke was rising so quickly to the upper floors, they couldn’t make their way outside their upper apartment into the hallway because of the smoke. They just went to a window and they threw the child outside to the people, to the neighbors, down on the ground.” A two-year-old and a three-year-old hit the ground, but are expected to recover from minor injuries. Zna said, “In our family we take care of our neighbors, no matter what. No matter if they get hurt or anything, we take care of them.”
