Excerpts from abc7chicago.com:

A 69-year-old grandfather who threw his 7-year-old grandson out a second-story window to Chicago police officers below as their home burned has died, the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed on Monday.

Apolonio Castellano was critically injured in the Sept. 9 fire in the 10000 block of South Avenue L in Chicago’s East Side neighborhood. He was taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center with burns and smoke inhalation. The boy survived thanks to Castellano efforts.
