Thats really amazing that he held on and the little baby didn't get hurt at all, especially since he was slammed into a plate glass window.
Here's another good news story about stuff like this. It happened in my neighbourhood and it was my downstairs neighbour and his brother in law that did it. They saved a baby that fell out of a third storey window. This happened last June.
SAINT JOHN - The city is looking at ways to honour two heroes who saved the life of a two-year-boy in the north end Saturday.
Just before 10 p.m. on Saturday, the quick actions of James Blagden and his brother-in-law, Brain Norwood, saved the life of the toddler.
Seeing a child crawling out the window of a home on Victoria Street, the pair ran a block to make the rescue. While Norwood ran to the apartment yelling trying to alert those in the apartment and get to the child before he fell, Norwood stood below and made a superhuman catch. The little boy bounced off his arm and then he snatched the toddler out of midair by the ankles. The child survived the incident without a scratch.

The negativity here absolutely slays me. He's not a hero? No, he's a hero, he saved his child's life. He could have just as easily dropped the kid and dove away saving his own ass, but instead, he hung on, took whatever impact that was about to happen and shielded the baby from whatever potential harm could have came from that situation.
This man could have easily died getting hit or pinned against the wall and the fact that he put his child in front of his own safety makes him a hero.
You people are seriously disgusting who claim you "don't see a hero" or anything to that extent. You see someone trying to not get pinned against the glass? Well I see a father who was willing to die for his child's safety and THAT makes him a hero.
