LAWRENCE, Mass. - Two men were being hailed as heroes by police on Monday for catching a toddler who fell 40 feet from a home's third-story window.

Robert Lemire told the North-Andover (Mass.) Eagle-Tribune newspaper that he was talking on his cell phone Sunday evening outside a pizza shop in Lawrence, about 25 miles north of Boston, when he saw the toddler dangling from a window across the street.

The 45-year-old father of two bolted across a busy street, where he met 23-year-old Alex Day, who had been inside the home at a Bible study meeting. Together, they caught the 18-month-old before she hit the ground.


"I've only seen something like that on TV," Lemire told the Eagle-Tribune.

"She's lucky. Everybody is lucky," he told the newspaper.

Day said the event was "absolutely incredible."

"She was so small, she would have really been hurt. ... It was pretty amazing when I look back on the whole thing," the Eagle-Tribune quoted him as saying.

The child's father was caring for a newborn at the time.

"These guys are heroes, no question about it," Police Chief John Romero said.

You don't name your newborn daughter "Participle" without a good reason.

I'm really glad it worked out. That being said, Dwayne Bowe meet your new receivers coach.

I've got 4 kids and none have ever fallen out of a window. Hell, none of them have even been in the situation where falling out of the window was a remote possibility.

I'd say that makes me father of the year, but what do I know, none of my kids have ever fallen out of a window...... :D

At least it had a happier ending than the beheading and fatal stabbing thread. Helps even out my Monday.

Not cool at all. Maybe I am being too sensitive, as that song hits very close to my heart, but to make a joke with the song in this situation is very very poor taste.

Thank God for the 2 gentleman who were there to catch the little girl.

Hopefully the father learned a very important lesson and will take steps to insure it never happens again.
