Man Catches Autistic Girl in Three-Story Fall from Brooklyn Apartment (Video)

Bus driver Steve St. Bernard, 52, with daughter Tahaani, doesn't consider himself a hero after rescuing 7-year old from three-story drop from Brooklyn apartment.

Every day we find a million stories in the news that make us want to give up on people.  Most days it feels like the world is turning into an insane asylum.  But it only takes one good story to restore hope in our nation’s people.

Steve St. Bernard, 52, stood below his Brooklyn, New York’s neighbor’s window when he discovered little Keyla McCree, 7, standing on top of her air conditioner three stories up from the ground below, according to New York Daily News.  The young girl appeared to dance around on top of the air conditioner until she lost her balance and was caught by Bernard.

She made her way out on to the air conditioner by making an exit through the accordion-like plastic partition that fills the space between the air conditioner and the window frame. Bernard, who has four children of his own, caught the child, but doesn’t consider himself a hero:

“I went over there to make sure if she fell I could catch her,” St. Bernard said. “I’m not a hero — anybody would have done it. I did it out of normal instincts.”

Well, he doesn’t feel that he is, but certainly everyone else does, especially her parents.  A neighbor across from where the incident took place filmed the entire event.  It’s enough to stop your heart! The child was completely uninjured according to her mother Shaleema to the Sun:

“She’s fine. Not a scratch on her. The man caught her, thank God. It’s a miracle.”

Bernard tore a ligament in his left bicep, but other than that, he is doing fine.

Check it out.  God bless them both!
