INDICE DE GALERIAS
NEW YORK (AP) — The daughter of former New York Yankees manager Joe Torre is getting props from her dad for catching a baby boy who had tumbled off a second-floor fire escape in Brooklyn.
Torre said in a statement Wednesday that he was “very proud of my daughter Cristina’s actions today during an incident in Brooklyn involving a small child.”
Torre is now Major League Baseball’s executive vice president of baseball operations.
“I didn’t really know what was going to happen. … You just move into action — you don’t really think about it,” Cristina Torre told the Daily News of New York.
She was having coffee at a cupcake shop when bystanders saw the 1-year-old dangling from an awning of a frozen yogurt store next door.
“I’m talking to him saying, ‘Don’t come down, stay there,’” she said. “He helped himself with his arms. He was dangling. I knew he would be flipping very soon.”
She said the child “literally landed in my arms.” Torre credited her father for her “good hand-eye coordination.”
According to police, the child somehow climbed onto the fire escape. He was in stable condition.
The parents were arrested and charged with reckless endangerment.
