    Men Save Falling Child

    Two NYC Men Save Falling Toddler

    NEW YORK Two passers-by rescued a toddler who fell four stories, scrambling to catch him as he tumbled from a fire escape, police said.

    Julio Gonzalez, 43, and Pedro Nevarez, 40, saw 3-year-old Timothy Addo dangling from a Bronx building on Thursday, police said. The boy had crawled out of a window when his baby sitter briefly took her eyes off of him, police said.

    "He was hanging on for dear life," Gonzalez said.

    Hearing people in the building scream for help as the boy's grip weakened, the men rushed over to position themselves under the fire escape to catch him.

    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    Thank God!

    I bet that poor kid will have a fear of heights for the rest of his life.

    Depends on the kid Jovin. My nephew would have thought it was fun and been saying 'wanna do it again!'


    Thank goodness for these two men.

    And that makes 3 guardian angels in NYC in as many days. The end of the world must truly be near. Just kidding!!!

    I suppose because he's so young, it hopefully won't affect him the way it would if he was a few years older.
