The helmet camera video, posted by DeKalb County Fire and Rescue, was taken at the Avondale Forest Apartments on Jan. 3.

The video shows a person on top of a ladder drop a child down to a firefighter as the flames roar around them.

The firefighter catches the child and quickly runs to safety.

"Third-generation DCFR firefighter Capt. Scott Stroup can be seen catching one of the children that was dropped from the third-floor balcony. Great job by all hands operating on this fire as several lifesaving grabs were made that night," the department posted on Facebook.

An estimated 50 people were left without a place to live after the massive fire at the Decatur apartment complex.

Capt. Eric Jackson, with DeKalb County Fire and Rescue, told WSB-TV that four adults and eight children were hurt in the fire.

He said their injuries were minor and mostly related to smoke inhalation.

Firefighters kicked in doors and ushered out residents when they arrived on the scene, Jackson said. 

One of the victims told WSB-TV's Steve Gehlbach hearing the screams coming from the people trapped was the most frightening part of the fire for them.

“Jumping out of the building. Jumping out of their balconies. Someone said they threw their baby outside and fireman caught the baby,” they said.

Comedian Aziz Ansari has responded to allegations of sexual misconduct

Funnyman Aziz Ansari has responded to allegations of sexual misconduct published last weekend on the website Babe.

The woman, who said she met Aziz Ansari at a 2017 Emmys party when she was 22, has accused the actor and comedian of sexual misconduct. What started as a date allegedly ended in an incident the woman — who chose not to disclose her true identity but was referred to as “Grace” — said left her feeling “violated.”

After the two went to dinner, which Grace said Ansari seemed eager to get over with so they could return to his apartment, she said he disregarded her verbal and non-verbal cues to take things slow, kissing, groping and pressuring her for sex.

In a statement released by his rep last night, Ansari said he was “surprised and concerned” to find hear of the allegations, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

“In September of last year, I met a woman at a party,” Ansari began. “We exchanged numbers. We texted back and forth and eventually went on a date. We went out to dinner, and afterwards we ended up engaging in sexual activity, which by all indications was completely consensual.”

“The next day, I got a text from her saying that although ‘it may have seemed okay,’ upon further reflection, she felt uncomfortable,” he continued. “It was true that everything did seem okay to me, so when I heard that it was not the case for her, I was surprised and concerned. I took her words to heart and responded privately after taking the time to process what she had said.”

Ansari wrapped up his statement by reiterating his support for the Me Too and Time’s Up movements: “I continue to support the movement that is happening in our culture. It is necessary and long overdue.”

“Grace” said she sent the “Master of None” creator a text the day after the incident, but added that she has been traumatized by the event,

“I cried the whole ride home. At that point I felt violated. That last hour was so out of my hand,” she told Babe. “I didn’t leave because I think I was stunned and shocked. This was not what I expected. I’d seen some of his shows and read excerpts from his book, and I was not expecting a bad night at all, much less a violating night and a painful one.”

“I believe that I was taken advantage of by Aziz,” Grace told Babe. “I was not listened to and ignored. It was by far the worst experience with a man I’ve ever had.”

Experts: Parents feed babies solid food too soon

Are Americans feeding their babies solid foods too early?

One group of child-feeding advocates say yes and that the move to feed babies solids early can follow them for the rest of their lives.

>> Read more trending news 

The group, called thousanddays.org, examined nutrition for babies in America.

Thousand days refers to pregnancy through the first two years after birth.

Its research found that nearly 40 percent of parents are introducing solids too early and that only 22 percent of babies are exclusively breastfed for six months.

Thousanddays.org said that more than half of moms say they are getting mixed messages on what to feed their babies.

So what are parents feeding their children and when?

Chloe Barrera with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevents said that she oversaw a study that took a look at what 1,482 babies from the age of 6 to 36 months ate. Parents told researchers when they first ate food that wasn’t formula or breast milk. Other foods included juice, cow’s milk, baby food or other solids. About two-thirds of families were not following official recommendations. Some parents introduced foods too early, or before 4 months (16.3 percent) , many (38.3 percent) gave food to their babies between 4 and 5 months, while some held off solid foods until 7 or more months (12.9 percent), Huffington Post reported.

Barrera’s study was published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

But study authors say the numbers may be worse than reported since research depended upon self-reporting and that parents who know the recommendations may have under-reported the ages of their children and when they fed them solid foods, Huffington Post reported.

Experts say babies should be either breast fed or fed for their first 6 months because those foods have the nutrients babies need for development. 

The U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Department of Health and Human Services are both working on federal guidelines for children under 2 years old. The guidelines are expected to be released in 2020, Huffington Post reported.

KOKI has been following the story of Jaqie Angel Warrior for years now. Her mother, Brittany Warrior, said she needs cannabis oil to help with the seizures she has every day.

>> On FOX23.com: New poll finds 62 percent of Oklahomans support medical marijuana measure

Jaqie Angel Warrior suffers from a rare and potentially deadly form of epilepsy. Traditional pharmaceuticals haven't worked well for her, the family says.

She started having seizures at 5 months old. At 20 months old, the family put her on cannabis oil at the advisement of her neurologist. Since then, she has been weaned off all pharmaceuticals.

Jaqie's mother, Brittany Warrior, said they were losing all hope before they tried cannabis oil.

"Prior to starting cannabis, Jaqie had anywhere from 150 to 300 seizures a day. She was catatonic and life was fading out of her before my eyes," she said.

The family has traveled back and forth, and even temporarily moved to states with legalized medical marijuana.

Now that State Question 788 is on the ballot in Oklahoma, Brittany Warrior hopes that voters will support the measure to help her child.

Sam Rockwell accidentally dropped the F bomb on “SNL” — and Twitter is cringing

When Golden Globe winning actor Sam Rockwell made his “Saturday Night Live” hosting debut on the evening of Jan. 13, he was probably hoping to wow viewers with his impeccable comedic timing — but they ended up being stunned by his potty mouth instead.

That’s right, the “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” star dropped the F-bomb during his very first sketch!

The cringeworthy incident occurred during a PBS parody skit called “Science Show” that also featured regular “SNL” cast members Cecily Strong and Mikey Day. Rockwell plays a Bill Nye-esque science teacher who attempts to teach two of his more intellectually challenged students about the wonders of science using experiments.

In fact, Strong and Day played dumb so well that Rockwell couldn’t help but go off-script:

"You can't be that fucking stupid" -Sam Rockwell on #SNL. No they didn’t bleep it out lol pic.twitter.com/YwvOefPSDi — Philip Lewis (@Phil_Lewis_) January 14, 2018

“You can’t be this fucking stupid,” he exclaimed.

Needless to say, the great minds over at Twitter dot com had an absolute field day!

In a SNL skit Sam Rockwell accidently let the F bomb fly. The skit was about a teacher frustrated with his students. He said to them "you can't be this fucking stupid"!

Variety’s Brian Steinberg pointed out that Rockwell wasn’t the first person to drop the F-bomb on the show:

This is the very act that got Charles Rocket fired from the show in 1981 — Brian Steinberg (@bristei) January 14, 2018 And hurt Jenny Slate in the 2009-2010 season — Brian Steinberg (@bristei) January 14, 2018 Kristen Stewart dropped the word in February of last year — Brian Steinberg (@bristei) January 14, 2018

Kristin Stewart’s potty mouth got the better of her during her opening monologue last February: “OK, so we’ve got a great show,” Stewart said, “and I totally care that I’m here ’cause it’s the coolest fucking thing ever.”

According to “Inside Edition,” the family was finally granted state housing but couldn’t afford to furnish the home. Daeyrs had been sleeping on only blankets until the family got the help they needed.

Nonprofit organization Humble Design stepped in to make the house a home for the family.

“When we visited them earlier this week they just had an air mattress on the ground and a few camp chairs,” the organization wrote on Facebook.

Video shared to the group’s Facebook page shows Daeyrs touring the house with his mom for the first time. When it came time to tour his room, the designers told Daeyrs to close his eyes.

When he opened them, he saw a completely furnished room, complete with "Star Wars" posters, a desk, and most importantly, his very own bed.

He immediately broke down in tears.

“Seeing how much having a bed and his own room meant to Daeyrs, it really made me realize what’s important in life and grateful for everything I have,” Humble Design founder Tregar Strasberg told “Inside Edition.”

One guy’s story about his family “poop knife” tradition will have you sprinting for the bleach

There are some things in this world that we would be perfectly happy not knowing about — the “poop knife” is one of those things. Unfortunately, thanks to one Reddit user, we recently learned that “poop knifes” are an actual utensil.

A Redditor who aptly goes by the screen name “LearnedButt” recently shared his “poop knife” tale, in a thread entitled “I was 22-years-old when I learned that not every family has a poop knife.” He writes that his family “poops big” and that they had a “poop knife.” He described the blade as “an old rusty kitchen knife that hung on a nail in the laundry room,” adding “I thought it was standard kit. You have your plunger, your toilet brush and your poop knife.”

But at 22 he was over at a friend’s house — this friend happened to be the local “dealer,” selling marijuana to the community — when he learned the hard truth about poop knives. At one point, “LearnedButt” writes that he had to use the restroom, writing “I look down and see that it’s a sideways one, so I crack the door and call out for my friend. He arrives and I ask him for his poop knife.” Of course, the friend didn’t have a “poop knife” and the unfortunate defecater writes “he starts giggling. Then laughing. Then lots of people start laughing … it turns out that none of them had poop knifes, it was just my f**ked up family with their f**ked up bowels.”

But the horror story didn’t end there. He says that he later told his wife about the incident and that she was “amused and horrified at the same time.” Of course, she didn’t know what a “poop knife” is. Even more disturbingly, he says “she had been using the old rusty knife hanging in the utility closet as a basic utility knife. Thankfully, she didn’t cook with it, but used it to open boxes.”

And, while we have a lot of questions and concerns, we’d like to point out that the possession of a “poop knife” really seems like the kind of thing you’d want to know about somebody before you marry them.

Also, apparently this poor fellow was not the only one with a “poop knife” — there are plenty of definitions for the term on UrbanDictionary. And all of them pretty much say the same, disgusting thing.
