Man catches child by feet in midair after boy fell 30 feet from escalator

with one comment


It was the catch of a lifetime…and that ‘good catch’ by a San Diego man may have saved the life of a 4-year-old boy.

21-year-old Antonio Jones was at the Mission Viejo Mall Friday with his girlfriend.

The couple craved a burger from Islands Restaurant.

Jones was standing outside the restaurant on the ground floor when he noticed little Jimmy Lavin get tangled in an upstairs escalator.

The escalator hand-rail pulled Lavin upstairs to the second floor.

In an instant, the sobbing boy was carried upward as he dangled off the staircase.

Jones was a few steps away when Lavin hit the top wall was knocked off the escalator rail.

The boy plummeted 30 feet head-first toward the concrete walkway.

Jones reacted… jumping forward and catching the child with one hand on each leg.

It was a near perfect catch… Lavin’s head just barely touched the ground.

The child was taken to a nearby hospital where he was treated for a minor bump on the noggin and released.

Jones is being credited for saving the boy’s life.
