Mason Fierro, one of the workers, told the station he saw a man screaming for help from the second-story with his baby and toddler.

“We saw him hanging out of the window with his baby, his two-month-old baby,” Fierro said.

Construction workers brought their ladders over while Fierro told the man to drop the baby girl into his arms.

“He dropped her. I caught her. Then they bring another little boy, two or three-years-old, then we caught him as well,” Fierro added.

“We had each other’s back, and it was just an all-in thing,” Fierro said.

Fierro and the crew made sure the children’s parents were okay before going door-to-door to alert people until firefighters arrived.

Police in California said they’re looking for the man who was captured on surveillance video allegedly stealing a dog outside a San Francisco market over the weekend.

The dog’s owner, Jenny Seta, posted Saturday on Facebook that her golden retriever named Lily was stolen outside Nijiya Market in Japantown. She said it happened on Saturday around 5 p.m.

“I went into the market for less than ten minutes. She was waiting for me outside the market. She was secured to a post,” Seta told Fox News. “When I got out she was gone and I asked the store to view their surveillance footage and that’s when we saw the video of the man taking her.”

When asked what her initial reaction was, Seta told Fox News, “It was a just a nightmare.”

She added, “My immediate thought was someone stole her and I really thought I would never see her again.”

However, Seta was not giving up.

Seta said she recorded the video from the market’s surveillance system and gave the video to the San Francisco Police Department.  She also posted the video on her Facebook page.

Seta asked people to share the video and to keep an eye out for her dog and people selling golden retrievers.

“I really appreciate all those who are helping with the search; the community, people on Facebook who continue to share the video, the police,” Seta told Fox News.

She said she’d been getting several tips and has been driving to the areas where people reported seeing Lily.

“The owner is heartbroken,” an officer in San Francisco tweeted on Sunday along with the surveillance video.

“Lily is 5 years 11 months and weighs about 60lbs,” Seta wrote on her Facebook page. “She is small and slender for a golden and very loving and affectionate.”

Seta told Fox News she said spent more than eight hours on Sunday walking and driving around San Francisco trying to find her dog.

Pennsylvania woman charged with DUI bites officer during arrest, prosecutors say

New Jersey prosecutors said a Pennsylvania woman has been charged with driving under the influence after she allegedly took off from police on Saturday, attacked multiple officers and even bit one in the leg as she was arrested.

A New Jersey State Park police officer said he’d tried to stop Jessica Hayes, 30, when she was leaving Island Beach State Park because she was going over 70 mph in a 35 mph zone.

The officer said Hayes “ignored commands to pull over and continued out of Island Beach State Park at a high rate of speed,” according to the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office.

PHILLY GIRL, 9, CRITICALLY INJURED AFTER LIGHTING FIREWORK INSIDE HOME, REPORT SAYS

Prosecutors said she continued to drive “reaching speeds of 60 miles per hour while weaving in and out of traffic.” The officer decided to stop pursuing her “due to the substantial risk of injury to the public.”

Later, Seaside Park Police were said to have spotted Hayes at a bank and questioned her.

BODIES OF MARRIED COUPLE PULLED FROM RIVER IN PENNSYLVANIA, CHILD FOUND IN CAR NEARBY: POLICE

Hayes, of Bensalem, Pennsylvania, a half hour from Philadelphia, allegedly “displayed signs of intoxication” at the bank, and officers conducted field sobriety tests.

However, once police tried to arrest her, she allegedly attacked two Seaside Park officers, causing minor injuries, and bit a New Jersey State Park police sergeant on his leg.

Prosecutors said it seemed the injured officers “will all be OK.”

It wasn’t clear whether Hayes had an attorney; a message left for her Saturday by The Associated Press wasn’t immediately returned.

Hayes was being evaluated at a local hospital and will be transported to the Ocean County Jail once she is medically cleared, according to prosecutors.

Hayes also was charged with eluding, aggravated assault, resisting arrest, obstructing the administration of law, and several motor vehicle violations.

Driver seen attacking Florida hotel owner over parking spot, reports say

Police in Florida said they’re looking for a man who was spotted on surveillance video allegedly attacking a hotel owner over a parking spot earlier this year.

The Hollywood Police Department released the video on Friday showing the hotel owner speaking to the suspect, who then started beating the 69-year-old man.

“It’s amazing how people can do that, plus I was a senior citizen,” the owner, who identified himself as Rudy, told WSVN. “Next year I’m going to be 70 years old.”

Rudy, who owns the Shore View Hotel, told the television station that drivers who weren’t guests at the hotel still used the parking lot often.

“People park in our spaces, even though they say ‘tow away’ and everything else,” he said. “They’ll park in our private property and go to the beach.”

Rudy told the station he asked the man not to park in a clearly marked parking spot on the property after he showed up on May 25.

“I asked him very kindly if he would move,” he said, adding that the suspect told him he was not going to move his car.

“He told me that when he comes to Hollywood, he parks wherever the ‘f—’ he wants to,” Rudy told the station.

“When I saw he was that hostile, I turned around and went to get my cellphone out of the office to call the police,” he continued.

Rudy said when he came back out of the office, the suspect was “smoking a joint.”

“He told me that because I was so nice to him, he would go ahead and leave, but after he finished his joint,” Rudy told the station.

“So I told him, ‘You can’t smoke because I’ve got a hotel full of people and kids here. The smell is everywhere. You can’t do that.’”

Rudy said it looked as if the suspect was going to leave, but instead, he attacked.

“Before I know it, he came back behind me, and he sucker-punched me,” Rudy told the media outlet.

The video showed the man punching the hotel owner repeatedly. Rudy was then seen kneeling on the ground trying to protect himself.

“I can’t defend myself like I used to, when I was in my 20s and 30s,” he told the station.

Missouri girl, 7, drowns, mother seriously hurt after car plunges into pond, investigators say

A 7-year-old girl drowned and her mother suffered serious injuries after the car she was driving ended up submerged in a Missouri pond on Saturday, investigators said.

30-year-old Reem Alkhirafi was driving in Warren County, about an hour from St. Louis County, when dust in the road “obstructed” her vision, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol.

In the crash report obtained by Fox News, investigators said Alkhirafi then drove off the road and landed in a pond. Her three children were inside the car at the time as well.
