BAL HARBOUR, FLORIDA — A quick-thinking 9-year-old is crediting divine intervention after he dove just in time to catch his baby brother, who had fallen from a changing table.
What is being hailed as miracle occurred last month when the kids’ mom, Tila Levi, left her 11-month-old baby unattended on a changing table to get her other five children ready for bed, WSVN reported.
The baby rolled over, his left foot dangling off the edge of the table. Moments later, a home surveillance camera captured this footage.
That’s when 9-year-old Joseph sprang into action. The nearly 30-pound baby fell nearly four feet. Joseph, who says he normally can’t even carry his brother, believes he had help from God.
Joseph said he felt “something came and just pushed me forward.” With that push, Joseph was able to catch the baby at just the right time.
Joseph’s mom hopes the incident will serve as a reminder to all the parents out there, because it could happen to anyone.
As for Joseph, he said, “Miracles can happen always, but since this time it was me, I’m really thankful.”
