Steven St. Bernard caught a seven-year-old girl after she fell from a third-story window in Brooklyn, New York, the New York Daily News reports.
“I just prayed that I’d catch her,” said St. Bernard, 52, an MTA bus driver. “I was right underneath her.”

Incredibly, the girl, Keyla McCree, survived the fall. Though she was not injured, she was taken to the hospital as a precaution. “Not a scratch on her,” the mother, Shaleema McCree, told the New YorkPost. “The man caught her, thank God. “It’s a miracle.”
St. Bernard, on the other hand, suffered a torn tendon in his left bicep from making the life-saving catch.
The little girl crawled through an open space in her apartment window next to the air conditioner around 2:30 p.m, according to witnesses. She then began joking around and dancing on top of the air conditioning unit before losing her balance. The family was not required to have a window guard if an air-conditioning unit was there in its place.
Police have not filed charges against the family.
