(Memphis) A family of four was rescued from their burning in Whitehaven on Haleville Road.

Neighbors said they woke up to screams.

“[The mother] was screaming for help from a window,” said neighbor Ariel Anderson. “All I could think about was the kids.”

Neighbors rescued two children, 15 and 7 years old, but couldn’t get the mother and 11-year-old.

“We kept trying to pull her, but it was like she was slipping,” said Anderson.

When firefighters got to the scene, they pulled the mother and 11-year-old out of a window in the back of the home.
