Selfless: 21-year-old mother gives up her life to save 12-day-old baby

A mother heroically saved her newborn from a raging fire by strapping the baby in a car seat and dropping her out of a second-floor window before she died from smoke inhalation.

Shelby Carter, 21, managed to save her daughter Keana Davis, who was born just 12 days before their home in Wyoming, Illinois, erupted in flames on Monday morning.
