    Dramatic photo of baby hanging out window of burning Bronx apartment

    Here is the dramatic picture of a 7-month-old girl being dangled precariously out the fifth-floor window of a burning Bronx apartment on Monday.

    The photo, taken by neighbor Maya Tucker, shows how close to death little Zaniwah Alexandra came before firefighters scaled ladders to save her.

    Zaniwah's cousin, Vanessa Scott, 18, told the Daily News she held the baby out the window so she could breathe.

    "I slid the baby through the [child guard] bars," said Scott, who suffered smoke inhalation in the 2 p.m. blaze at the Pelham Parkway Houses that started in a closet.

    "There was just smoke everywhere and flames. I couldn't get anywhere except for the window," she said. "You couldn't see anything."

    Firefighters scaled a ladder to pluck Zaniwah from the window and save Scott and eight other relatives, including Zaniwah's mother and 2-year-old sister, from the blaze.

    I could not imagine the pain that mother is going through. I hope everyone was able to get out.... Bars on window, the 2 edged sword...

    Ouch. That is a tough picture to look at and contemplate the possibly outcomes.

    On the fifth floor, I would think burglars could be discouraged other ways. As to "child guard", WATCH YOUR FRAKKING KID!!!!!

    You need bars to keep a 7 month old from going out a window?!?!?

    How many kids in that dwelling DS? Did the news report say? Didja miss the part about the "2 yr old sister"? Did it also say the bars were to prevent kids from climbing out?

    How many folks you know survive a jump from 5 stories?
