Former Saddleback College receiver catches child thrown from burning building

As a former wide receiver in high school and college, Phillip Blanks has good hands.

As a retired U.S. Marine, Blanks was trained to “always be on high alert, not be complacent and to have discipline," he said.

Blanks employed all of those skills last week when he caught a 3-year-old boy who was tossed from a burning building just as the child was about to hit the ground.

The one-time member of the football team at Saddleback College in Mission Viejo was visiting a friend's apartment in Phoenix on Friday when he heard people yelling outside. Without taking the time to put his shoes on, Blanks ran out and saw the top floor of the apartment complex engulfed in flames.
