BAL HARBOUR, FL (WCMH) – A Florida boy is being called a hero after catching his baby brother mid-fall from a changing table.
Video shows mother of five Tila Levi placing her 11-month-old baby on a changing table. As she turns around for a moment, her baby boy started rolling off the table.
A moment before he hits the ground, his nine-year-old brother Joseph swooped in and caught him, WSVN reported.
“I was just getting everyone ready for bed. I was home alone with the five kids, and at first, I said I messed up. I did something wrong, but then, I realized that really it was a miracle. I must have done something right to be deserving of this little guy running in at the right time and catching him in the right moment,” said Tila Levi.
Tila says she wants the video out, because she says it could happen to anyone.
“It can happen to anybody, and now I know who it’s happened to, because everybody’s been confessing about when they dropped their baby,” Tila said. “So obviously I am more careful, but at the end of the day, it happens in a second, and I think that all of our lives can change in a second.”
Both Tila and Joseph say Joseph’s quick reaction was nothing short of a miracle.
“Miracles can happen always, but since this time it was me, I’m really thankful,” said Joseph.
“And I said to him, ‘You just saved your baby brother,” Tila said. “’ You just saved his life. You’re a hero.'”
