Children playing is a usual scene for residents of this Springfield apartment complex, but not a toddler dangling from a window.
Virginia Schrum, Resident: "It just shocked me!"
This is the woman who was charged with that toddler's care. Now she's charged with a crime.
Eyewitnesses say after dangling the child from this second story window, Rebecca Woods then dropped that two-year-old.
Stanley Murphy and Zhamar Young were playing football nearby and ran over when they saw the toddler being dangled out the window.
That's when these two say Woods dropped that toddler right into their hands.
Zhamar Young, "The baby was falling like this. If we wouldn't have caught his head, and I wouldn't have caught his legs, his face would have hit the ground and his legs would have hit the concrete."
Virginia Schrum's lived in this apartment complex for three years, and says it's hard to believe what happened.
Schrum, "That's a baby we are talking about, an innocent child, that couldn't protect itself...It is frightening to hear something like that in your own community."
"To know my son caught a toddler...."
Natosha Murphy is the mother of one the boys who caught the two year old.
Murphy, "Stanley how did you catch the baby...Ma, I saw it, ran and slid, and the baby fell on my collar bone."
She tells me how proud she is that her son was at the right place at the right time.
Murphy, "It's just like you can't explain it to be a mother, and I feel it's a blessing for my child to be up there to see what's going on to save this baby what it no kids up there."
Both women hope parents take a hard look at whose watching their children.
Schrum, "You have to really check someone out before you leave your babies with them.
Murphy, "People need to pay attention to who watch their kids, sometimes we have to make good choices on who watches our kids...Should be parents stepping up to be there with their toddlers.
