A day after Mother’s Day, but so damn bad ass.

S

Apartment fires are brutal. This woman is a grade A badass though; this is just incredible.

Damn

She had zero choice in the matter, either leap or face certain death and burn alive so it was pretty much her only option. Talk about a terrifying situation

Bad ass indeed.

Reminds me of the people that had to jump out of the WTC on 9/11. What a shitty feeling that must be.

I really hope she makes a full recovery.
