Joe Torre’s daughter is a hero. Cristina Torre was walking through Brooklyn Wednesday when she saw a baby fall from a fire escape. The child had climbed through a window, moving cardboard next to the apartment’s air conditioning unit. From CNN:
He then climbed onto the fire escape and fell onto the awning of a frozen yogurt shop directly below the apartment and bounced off, Duffy said.
That was when 44-year-old Cristina Torre, who happened to be passing by, saw the situation and positioned herself beneath the awning in time to catch the child, Duffy said.
The baby was taken to a nearby hospital and was in stable condition. The parents were charged with child endangerment and their other children (2, 3 and 5-years old) were taken by Child Protective Services. Let’s not focus on that though because Joe Torre’s daughter won the day.
“I am very proud of my daughter Cristina’s actions today during an incident in Brooklyn involving a small child. Fortunately for that child she was in the right place at the right time to lend a hand.”
Really, there is only one comparison to this amazing story.
