A Heart warming story below.
A former Marine and college wide receiver was able to save the life of a child with one of the most important catches of his life.
The 3-year-old child, Jameson Long, was thrown from the balcony of a burning apartment complex with Phillip Blanks making the incredible catch below. The incident was captured on video and had taken place in Phoenix in Arizona on July 3rd.
Blanks managed to catch the child right before he hit the ground.
Blanks told ABC, “Instinct.
There wasn’t much thinking. I just reacted. I just did it. I know how to catch it. I’ve learned how to catch a football.

ll. So I’ll give some credit to football.”
“I can definitely credit to the Marine Corps for instilling this good training in me to save a life. I don’t see myself as a hero. A person trained to do my job is trained to protect people,” he said, reports Daily Mail.
Both Jameson and his elder sister, 8, were rushed to the hospital with burns along with another woman but are expected to survive.
On the day of the fire, he heard a lot of commotion outside his building and went out to see.
He then heard someone yell that there was a fire raging after which he grabbed some things and ran outside barefoot, reports Bretibart.
Blanks revealed, “He was twirling in the air like a propeller.
I just did my best.
His head landed perfectly on my elbow. His ankle got twisted up as I was diving. The guy who was there with me – it looked like he wasn’t going to catch him. So that’s why I stepped in. I just wanted to make a better catch.”
Tragically, the mother died in the fire after she saved her child.
The woman’s last action was to throw her son to safety given she was already covered in flames. Blanks said,
“She’s the real hero of the story. Because she made the ultimate sacrifice to save her children.”
The child’s father was not at home when the fire broke out and was at work. Investigators are looking into the cause of the fire, Breitbart shared.
Who creates most of the division among ethnic groups in America?
The government of course.
Do you believe for one moment the black Marine wondered what color the baby he was saving was?
Hell now, this is why the the far left exists, to create division among up and it is failing.
