Marena Vasquez, mother of a 4-month-old boy in Fort Worth, Texas, was forced to throw her baby from the second floor window as a fire engulfed her apartment. Fortunately, Antonio Olvera, a maintenance worker at the apartment complex ran over to the cries for help and saw Vasquez in the window holding the baby in the midst of smoke and flames. Antonio reportedly told Vasquez to throw the child into his outstretched arms.
“I dropped him, and he caught him,” Marena said of Olvera’s action. “He’s our angel because if it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t know what I’d do. I still would be have been stuck in that apartment.”
