A 4-year-old boy pulled from the second floor of a burning apartment building Sunday afternoon has died, according to the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office. Firefighters found the child, paramedics began performing life-saving measures and then rushed the boy to Children's Wisconsin, where he died. The fire department was called to the scene near North 84th Street and Mill Road at about 3 p.m. WISN 12 News' Kendall Keys spoke with a woman at the scene who said she heard screaming and ran into the smoke-filled building to try to save the child. "When I get out of the car, all you hear is 'Please, no! Help me! Not my baby, not my baby,'" neighbor Lashanda Blackmer said. She said she attempted to find the boy in the smoke-filled building. "I was inside of her house. We were literally up the stairs trying to get to the little boy," Blackmer said.
