The raw helmet-cam video above shows one of the babies being dropped into a fire captain’s arms at a January 3 apartment fire in DeKalb County, Georgia. In the story immediately below, Captain Jackie Peckrul tells of catching one of the other children.
If this sounds familiar for DeKalb County, another firefighter caught a baby from an April, 2017 apartment fire. That was also captured on camera. See the bottom story.
She could be called a hero and “supermom,” but she just thinks of herself as another firefighter.
Peckrul, a mother of triplets, is one of several first responders praised for saving children and families out of the January 3 fire at the Avondale Forest Apartments. The blaze displaced close to 80 people.
Tuesday, firefighters released helmet camera video of one of the rescues, where firefighter Captain Scott Stroup catches the baby’s older sibling as father Lance Ragland throws his child away from the flames.
