The baby and mother who were trapped on the third floor of a burning building in Worcester, Massachusetts, where a firefighter died Wednesday are recovering, according to a city spokesperson.
The mother, whose identity has not been released, was hospitalized after the four-alarm blaze. The infant is OK but under observation, according to Worcester spokesman Michael Vigneux.
The Wednesday morning fire claimed the life of 39-year-old Worcester Fire Lt. Jason Menard, who was helping fellow firefighters escape the home after they responded to a report of a resident and a baby stuck on the third floor.
It is unclear if the mother and child were rescued or if they escaped the danger on their own, Vigneux said.
