(Scroll down for video) A woman and her children in South Korea, are lucky to be alive after jumping out of the fourth floor of a burning building into blankets held by soldiers.

Soldiers and Airmen of the U.S. Army, rescued the three children and their mother as the family made a dramatic leap from the fourth floor of a burning building in the Songtan shopping district on Friday.

Master Sgt. Michael Henry and 1st Sgt. Melanie Scott, both of Headquarters and Headquarters Battery, were instrumental in saving the lives of the family.

Approximately 6:20 p.m., Scott of Grosse Ile, Michigan, and Henry of Lake Charles, Louisiana, were visiting the shopping district when they saw smoke billowing from the Crown Hotel.

"We saw a lady shimmying down the side of the building and realized there was a woman holding a baby out of the window several floors up," Scott said.

"The next thing I know we were both holding blankets to catch babies as a woman dropped them out of a window," he said.

"After I called 911, I helped hold the blanket for all three of the kids and their mother," said Jung Min Lee.

"The first little girl didn't land so well, which made me scared and worried about not being able to catch the other babies. I was very impressed by the courageous U.S. military members who helped with the rescue," Lee added.

The father, Prince Enyioko, expressed his gratitude to the service members who reacted so quickly.

"I really appreciate what happened that very day. I don't know how I can explain my thanks," Enyioko said.

"Without them, I don't know what I would do. I am so grateful for the wisdom of the military men and women," he added.

Emotionally, Enyioko recounted what he witnessed just a couple evenings earlier.

"My wife was with the children and I was on my way home when I first saw the fire," Enyioko said.

"I tried to help my family, but I couldn't. I was so surprised to see people gathering here to rescue my family especially the military. I felt so helpless," he said.

"We had no idea what could have happened. The building could have blown up next to us," Scott said.

Enyioko said his wife, Precious, did sustain some injuries, but his children, ages 7 months, 3 and 4 years old, all seem to be doing well.

"It was so difficult to drop my children," Precious Enyioko said.

"It was so dark in the room, and the kids were coughing and crying. When I saw the people gathering with the blankets, I could see it was military members, I thanked God," she said.

A woman of the United Kingdom, is angry after she was ordered to pay her former boyfriend for work he did at her home.

Gareth Powell, 31, who works as a home builder, bought a home together with his girlfriend, Chloe Thomas, 28, who works as an advertising executive.

The couple bought the rundown home for £315,000 ($456,323) in Wandsworth, London. Powell agreed to refurbish the house so they can sell it for a profit.

Powell borrowed £14,000 ($20,281) from his parents for materials and he renovated the property. The house is now worth £445,000.

The court heard that Thomas’s mother Heather asked Powell to sign a contract, entitling him to a third of the apartment if the couple broke up.

However, when they did separate, Thomas refused to comply with the agreement, saying that she did not know about the contract he signed with her mother. Furthermore, she claimed that the house was on her name, making her the sole owner.

Judge Heather Baucher rejected the idea that Thomas did not know about the contract Powell signed with his mother.

Baucher granted Powell a third of the profits or £50,000 ($72,432) and ordered Thomas to pay £200,000 ($289,728) in legal fees.
