A mother had no choice but to trust a stranger with her baby girl after flames engulfed her apartment complex hours before Thanksgiving.
According to NBC 5, Shuntara Thomas was yelling for help from her third-story apartment window when her savior said, “Trust me.”
Thomas remembers her motherly instincts kicking in during the terrifying moment. She said:
Byron Campbell was leaving the complex when he noticed the combustion and Thomas dangling her 1-year-old daughter from her window. He held out his arms and encouraged Thomas to drop her baby to him.
“I seen a lady, she yelled out the window she was about to drop the baby. So, my first reaction, was go by the window and catch the baby. When she dropped the baby I caught the baby and curled him up in my hands.”
