This is amazing and such good news. That mother is so brave and should be proud of herself. It's just great that they are all ok!

Fantastic thinking on the part of the mother. Contrast her with the actions of the mother who left her children unattended in Chicago, only to see 3 perish in a fire.

Original headline that the woman "daves" herself and children. Way to proof-read Trib!

Glad the woman and her kids made it out alive. I couldn't even begin to imagine...
