Man catches 4 week old baby thrown from burning apartment
A New York woman threw her one-month-old son from the third floor of a burning building and the baby was caught by an amateur baseball player standing outside, media reports said on Thursday. Local television stations aired a videotape of Wednesday's dramatic rescue in the Bronx taken by a surveillance camera.
It showed the baby, swathed in white, tumbling some 30 feet
into the arms of Housing Authority employee Felix Vazquez, one of several people waiting below.
The Daily News said firefighters rescued Tracinda Foxe from her apartment shortly after she tossed her baby to Vazquez, who plays catcher on a neighborhood baseball team.
"I said 'God, please save my son,'" Foxe was quoted as saying. "I prayed that someone would catch him and save his life."
