  • Superman saves baby from burning building. No, really.

    A four-alarm apartment fire sent two people to the hospital including a firefighter and destroyed dozens of units.

    It happened at the Mayan Palms Apartments in the 7500-block of Hunnicut Road.


    “They were taking their hands and breaking the glass and they pulled that fence to help get a disabled man out,” said Whitaker. “We were just trying to get as many people out as we can from here and in the back. There were people with a baby. They had to drop a baby down.”

    Tori Phillips, who happens to love Superman and was wearing a Superman hoodie, caught the baby.

    “I’d seen they needed help and they were scared to come down with their baby and I was like I’m right here, I’ll catch ‘em so that’s what I did and then another dude helped get his wife down and then he jumped down and got them to safety,” said Phillips.

    Phillips is among those who lost his apartment unit but the good Samaritan says he’ll move on from that. The baby he found momentarily in his arms this morning is a way bigger deal to him than the things he lost.

    Good job, Mr. Phillips! Hero of the day. Literally!
