Young dancers fall from their dance studio on the second story as a fire tore through the building in Edgewater, N.J., on Monday evening.

.

Many passers-by and strangers were seen trying to help but it was quite hard as the ladder wasn't able to reach there.

Smoke was so intense, people in Manhattan could see it.

"It was one of the bravest things I've ever seen", Mayor Michael McPartland explained of the girls. He said he called for help and that he and his friends tried to help the girls get out by putting a ladder up to the balcony and catching the girls on the ground after they jumped. "I didn't know it [was] gonna be that bad". "They escaped due to the bravery of these two guys".
