Special Needs Girl Falls 3 Stories – Man Catches Her [VIDEO]
We’ve found the video of MTA bus driver Stephen St. Bernard, 52, catching the girl as she fell from the third floor Brooklyn Coney Island housing complex.
Witnesses told the Daily News that she crawled out by pulling aside the unit’s accordion-like plastic partitions that keep the air conditioner secured in the window.
St. Bernard, who was waking home from work, noticed the girl playing outside on the air conditioner, “I just prayed that I’d catch her, Please let me catch her, please let me catch her. That’s all I could say.”
When the child jumped, St. Bernard caught the young girl in his arms. “I picked her up and carried her. … She kept looking around. She never closed her eyes. She never lost consciousness,” he said.
The girl was taken to a Coney Island hospital with minor injuries. St. Bernard, suffered a torn tendon in his shoulder.
