Great catch! In a heart-stopping incident,the daughter of a famous US baseball player made an amazing save by catching a 1-year-old toddler who fell off from the second floor of a building.

Joe Torre’s daughter Cristina Torre,44,had just left her home when she spotted 1-year-old Dylan Miller atop a frozen-yogurt shop in Brooklyn,sources were quoted by New York Daily News as saying.

As she was calling 911,the toddler fell. The toddler tumbled onto the awning and through the hole before landing in Cristina’s arms,sources said.

Torre said she picked a spot on the sidewalk where Dylan seemed to be headed. “I just was positioning myself where I thought he might fall. I feel fortunate that he landed right in my arms,” she said.

Dylan’s parents Tiffany Demitro,24,and Sam Miller,23,who were fast asleep at the time of the accident,were charged with reckless endangerment.
