A 7-year-old girl is lucky to be alive today after she fell from a third-story window in Brooklyn. The girl escaped injury on Monday after she was caught by a hero neighbor.
“I just prayed that I’d catch her,” said the girl’s savior, Steve St. Bernard, 52, an MTA bus driver. “I was right underneath her.”
The girl crawled out through an empty space next to the air conditioner in the window of her family’s apartment in the Coney Island Houses about 2:10p.m., cops and witnesses said
“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.”
Last night the child’s mother spoke out, insisting she is a good parent.
