The Burbank City Council on Tuesday honored a Burbank couple who saved a 3-year-old boy - using a box spring and some quick thinking - when he plunged out a third-story window last month. Jennifer and Konrad Lightner were moving out of their Burbank apartment March 16 to have it remodeled, the Burbank Leader reported , and had just returned home from their first trip to a storage unit. Shortly before 5 p.m., the couple were carrying their box spring to the U-Haul when they noticed a cluster of children's toys on the ground: a princess pillow, blankets and other plush toys.
