Monty Spencer, an 8-year-old boy jumped from the fourth floor of his family's burning apartment building in Gary on Sunday.
It ended up being a life-saving decision as he had nowhere else to go. He had lost track of his family during the smoke filled evacuation and had no choice but to jump.
Neighbors found a blanket and the terrifying jump was captured on video. He was not injured during the jump.
The fire killed two children and more than 100 people were displaced from the building.
So sad and scary. Sending thoughts and love to everyone there in Gary.
