A video uploaded to the Internet, showed the moment the pregnant woman of Istanbul, was forced to jump from the burning building to save herself and her unborn child.
The distressing images, showed heavy smoke and huge flames engulfing the building as a crowd gathered below. The young woman was unable to get out of the building, and was teetering on the edge of a roof.
At first, the woman was reluctant to jump, but when she was overcome by the smoke, spectators rushed pieces of cardboard and sheets to the scene. Luckily, she was able to jump from the first floor of the building and was caught by the crowd.
The woman is recovering at a hospital and is said to be in good condition.
