Baby Thrown From Fourth Floor Of Burning Building

A father in Ludwigshafen, Germany was forced to throw his infant son from a fourth-story window of a burning apartment building.

Miraculously, a person on the street below caught the baby. It isn't yet known if the baby's parents survived.

Officials have confirmed five other children, a pregnant woman and three more adults died in the flames.

The building had been crammed with people watching a religious festival in the street below.

The tragedy is the worst to happen in the city of Ludwigshafen since
World War Two.

Police are now investigating the possibility that it was an arson attack
carried out by neo-nazis aimed at the Turkish residence that lived in the
building.
