Amazing story of being at the right place at the right time.
Two men are being hailed as heroes by police for catching a toddler who fell 30 feet from a third-story window.
Robert Lemire of Methuen says that he was talking on his cell phone on Sunday evening outside a pizza shop when he saw the toddler dangling from a third-story window in a home across the street.
“I heard some commotion across the street. I saw some toys go out the window,” he said.
“A couple of minutes later, I heard a baby cry and I thought right away – I looked across and there was a baby hanging from the window sill.”
The toddler was being held by two other children.
The 45-year-old father of two bolted across a busy street and was nearly hit by a car.
“I didn’t even look, I just ran across the street,” Lemire said.
He met 23-year-old Alex Day, who had been inside the home at a Bible study meeting on the first floor.
Together, they caught 18-month-old Caliah Clark before she hit the ground.
“The baby basically fell about two seconds after we got there,” Day said.
“He got the top half, I pretty much got the bottom half,” said Lemire.
The child was taken to a hospital and is OK.
The toddler’s father was taking care of a newborn at the time.
