Men catch toddler in 30-foot fall [Video]

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.
