A baby in Illinois was tossed from a second story window during a multi-story residential fire, safely landing in the arms of a police sergeant standing below.

The infant was just one of five people, two dogs, and thirteen newborn puppies to be rescued from the blaze.

While the Streater Fire Department managed to arrive within ten minutes, it was Sergeant Robert Wood of Streater PD who was first on scene.

According to WEEK, Wood was amped up on adrenaline, but his instincts soon took over. He was able to catch the baby and evacuate the apartment within two minutes.

The fire took five hours to completely extinguish, and the damages are estimated to total around $50,000.
