NINGDE, CHINA – Shocking video shows Kindergarten kids being thrown from a burning building as their classroom burst into flames.

More than 300 students were in class at the time.

The heavy smoke and fire kept firefighters from using the stairs to rescue all of the kids. That’s when people on the ground turned blankets into nets. Rescuers dropped some of the children from the second-floor window into the blankets and into the arms of the people below.

The government says no one died in the fire.

One person told reporters the building recently failed inspection. He also said the building was not safe when it opened two years ago.

If that’s true, the rescue of the children just makes this fiery rescue even more miraculous.
