A baby was caught by a man after being dropped from the Grenfell Tower, following a huge fire that tore through the building.

A witness said the baby was dropped from the 9th or 10th floor to members of the public, who were waiting below.

She told the Telegraph: “People were starting to appear at the windows, frantically banging and screaming.”The windows were slightly ajar – a woman was gesturing that she was about to throw her baby and if somebody could catch her baby.

“Somebody did, a gentleman ran forward and managed to grab the baby.”

She also added: “I could see people from all angles, banging and screaming for help.

“Us members of the public were reassuring them, telling them we’ve done what we can and that we’ve phoned 999, but obviously the look on their face was death. My daughter’s friend said she observed an adult who made some sort of homemade parachute and tried to lower himself out of the window.

“The more I looked up, floor upon floor. Endless numbers of people. Mainly the kids, because obviously their voices, with their high pitched voices – that will remain with me for a long time.

“I could hear them screaming for their lives.”

Another woman, named Zara, spoke to LBC Radio, telling them that she had seen a woman throw her son, who she believed to be about five, out of a window. She told the radio station: “One woman actually threw her son out of the window. I think he’s OK “I think he might have just had some broken bones and bruises.”

The tragic fire has resulted in a number of fatalities as well as dozens of injuries.

    Complete rubbish story based on one woman’s sensationalism and wanting media attention. She seems to be the only eye witness to this story. Where is the baby? Where is the person who caught it?

    Dropped from that height, you are bound to have injuries and the person catching it would most likely have broken hands.

    News media and bloggers of course without investigation or common sense goes with the story
