Hero Catches Autistic Girl Falling Out Third Floor Window

The New York Post has the feel good story of the day.

7-year-old Brooklyn girl is miraculously alive and well today after plummeting three stories — thanks to a heroic neighbor who raced into action and broke her fall.

Cops said little Keyla McCree pushed out one of the accordion pieces that was holding a brand- new air conditioner in a bedroom window of her Coney Island apartment and squeezed through the tiny opening before she fell off.

“She’s fine,” said the autistic girl’s mom, Shaleema McCree

Dramatic cellphone video of Steven St. Bernard’s dramatic rescue shows a shoe-string catch that would make the Giants’ Victor Cruz proud.

St. Bernard, who lives in the same apartment complex, was on his way home from work and was parking his car when several children ran over to him begging him for help.

The bus driver, still in his blue MTA uniform, rushed over in the nick of time.

That’s a really nice catch. One of the New York football teams should do something nice for this guy…

    Wow. Good job, sir!

    Great catch!

    And, yes: the local sports teams ought to do something to honor The Greatest Hands in the City.

      I agree. Some free Jets/Giants seats in the owners’ box, flash the guy on the jumbo during half time.

    Good for him, he paid attention and did something.

    Another union member steps up the plate and saves the day.

      DERP!

      Oh for fuck’s sake! Can you refrain from shoving in your personal politics just once??? Are you incapable of simply saying, “Wow! What a great catch!” or “I’m so glad that this man saved that little girl”???

        Obviously not. Derp him and be done with him.

          Derps cause him to laugh. Might be time for a visit from Olaf, much as I’m loath to suggest such…

            Take it up with Kevin.

      I rather suspect that it has more to do with his being a decent human being than any membership in a union or club etc.

        Oh, but if he’d done something wrong – maybe robbed someone or found money and didn’t return it then got caught — the right would be braying all about this “union” member who did what “union people” do….

        And in this case, you’d be right He’s a union member who stepped up to the plate and saved someone.

      Our hero is a member of Transport Workers Union Local 100.

        Actually, his union membership has jack-squat to do with his actions, but Goofy is too blind to see that.
        The man is a true Good Samaritan and deserves many. many accolades for his actions.
        For his attempted thread-jacking with liberal talking points, Goffy needs a good spanking from his mommy.

        The question before us is: Is our hero a member of the union because he wants to be, or is union membership required to keep his job?

      • Ryan Murphy

        When union membership in a given profession is involuntary, then it ceases to be relevant as a marker for behavior, good or bad.

  • Sky__Captain

    Very well done.
    Too bad that L’il Grumpy doesn’t have the class or intelligence to leave his Democrat talking points out of the discussion.
