New York - A New York city bus driver is credited with saving the life of a 7 year old autistic girl who fell from a third floor window.
CBS News reports the girl's mother believed her daughter Keyla was asleep in her bedroom, but apparently slipped out the window and climbed onto the family's newly-installed air conditioner. A video of the incident shows the girl dancing on top of the unit before falling.
The quick thinking hero, Steven St. Bernard was on his way home from work when he spotted the girl and says "Basically she was dancing and I just - I was just praying that I would get there and that if she [fell] that I would catch her." He tells the Washington Post, “’Please let me catch her, please let me catch her.’ That’s all I could say.” He says the girl was shocked but appeared to be okay. She was taken to hospital but didn't suffer any serious injuries. St. Bernard suffered a torn tendon in his hand.
Neighbor Jessican Aleman tells CBS, "He has a heart, a very good heart -- kids, adults, anybody -- he would do anything for anybody."
Police talked to the girl's parents but say no charges will be laid.
