Two sanitation workers made life-saving grabs as they caught five children who leapt from a burning house in the Rockaways.

Joseph Maneggio and Semi Nkozi saw a house ablaze on McBride Street while on their route at approximately 6:15 a.m. this morning.  The sanitation workers raced over and caught the children as they jumped from the roof.  A woman, also on the roof, suffered a broken foot from the jump.

The police and fire departments responded to the scene and proceeded to control the blaze.
