Good Samaritans help rescue pregnant mom's 4 kids from apartment fire

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS -

A pregnant mother and her four children had a close call Wednesday night when her apartment caught fire in northeast Dallas.

She says she could not get our through her front door, and that it was hard to get her scared children together and listen to her.

Then she says she went to the balcony and yelled for help and got it from Good Samaritans who happened to be nearby.

She handed her four kids, ages 2 to 7, to two men over the balcony.

The woman was able to thank the men afterwards, sharing a hug.

She was treated for smoke inhalation, but the children were not hurt.

She told investigators that the fire started when she was trying to start a fire in the fireplace.
