To Catch A Kid

Those of you with children had better hang onto your hats for this one. Two passersby caught an 18 month old toddler who plummeted 30 feet out an open window in Lawrence, Massachusetts on Sunday.
Eighteen-month-old Caliah Clark survived a 30-foot plummet Sunday night and probably owes her life to the two men who ran to the spot below the window and caught her, one by the legs, another above the waist, and brought her, unhurt, back to her father in the apartment upstairs.

"People who have children know that it's impossible to keep your eye on them all the time," Lemire said, "and all it takes is a second."
Ain't it the truth though? My own two toddlers, Nib and Nub, are experts at getting into trouble in less than 10 seconds when you have your back turned. My heart beats fast just thinking about this story; adrenaline pumping; super-Dad reflexes on maximum.

Me, I'd be buying those guys steak dinners every Sunday for the rest of their lives.
