Security footage captured two young girls jumping from the fifth floor of a Detroit apartment building after their mom’s ex-boyfriend allegedly set it on fire.

The video shows unidentified neighbors standing next to a mattress laid out on the sidewalk prior to raising their arms to catch an 8-year-old girl who successfully made it out.

The girl then looked up at the building, where her sister and mother remained trapped before throwing clothes onto the mattress to cushion their fall.

The 14-year-old sister jumped out next, but landed so hard that she broke both her ankles and a wrist, FOX 2 Detroit reported. She is expected to make a full recovery.
