    Dramatic video shows two young women jump to their safety from a burning apartment building in Sandy Springs, Georgia. 

    When WXIA, an NBC affiliate in Atlanta, arrived at the scene, a young woman could be seen screaming for help after breaking the third-floor window. 

    Two neighbors appeared below and convinced the woman to jump into their arms. Moments later, a second young woman jumped from the window to safety. 

    "I heard someone banging on the window -- you could see the window all broken, so we just ran over there and helped them out," Deigo Silva told WXIA.

    Twenty-nine people from 11 families had their homes destroyed in the fire, officials told WXIA. The cause of the blaze was being investigated.
