When 10-year-old Zna Gresham’s Decatur, Ga., apartment building caught on fire, she and her family hurried outside to safety before noticing that their upstairs neighbor was trapped by thick smoke. The desperate mother got Zna’s attention before dropping her children — including a 1-month-old infant — from the window of the complex. Zna didn’t hesitate, somehow catching the falling baby in her outstretched arms. (Two other children were also dropped from the window, including a 3-year-old, but everyone got out OK.) “In our family we take care of our neighbors no matter what,” Zna said. “No matter if they get hurt or anything, we take care of them.”
