A MUM who threw her two-year-old daughter from the first floor window of her burning home has thanked the men who caught her.
Christine Grey, 39, was forced to throw her daughter Jessicca from the window after fire swept through the downstairs of their house in Grimshaw Lane, Newton Heath.
Luckily for Jessicca, Manchester council workers Patrick Morrisrowe, John Johnson, Jeff Dawson, Andrew Boland, and Paul Atkinson, were working nearby.
When they saw Mrs Grey waving frantically from the window they rushed to her aid and managed to catch Jessicca. Mrs Grey then climbed on to a drainpipe and was rescued by firefighters.
The mother-of-four said: “I’m really grateful for what the workmen did. They were brilliant. They saved my baby’s life.”
