Aftermath of the Fire

The Journal World profiles Eli Greenbaum, a victim of the Boardwalk apartment fire and a fellow student at the natural history museum:
Greenbaum suffered multiple fractures to his heels and ankles from his third-story leap. But he escaped the flames of the massive Oct. 7 fire that killed three people and destroyed the 76-unit, block-long apartment building in the 500 block of Fireside Drive.

Moments before Greenbaum jumped, his girlfriend, Dawn Davis, of St. Louis, went out the same window. She suffered a broken back, along with ankle and wrist fractures, smoke inhalation and other injuries.
Sounds like both are recovering nicely and will be back to their lives in time.
