ALBANY, N.Y. — A postal worker is credited with saving a 1-year-old girl by catching her after she fell out of a second-story window in Albany, N.Y.
Lisa Harrell was delivering mail to a home yesterday morning when she noticed a baby in an open window above the front door. Harrell says the next thing she knew, the baby fell into her arms.
When the baby’s mother realized what happened, she ran outside and grabbed the girl. The woman thanked Harrell and then ran to her mother’s house.
Paramedics checked the baby and found no injuries.
No charges are being filed against the mother, who says she had placed her daughter on a bed that was up against the window. The mother says her back was turned when her daughter crawled out.
