VIDEO: 9-year-old boy catches baby brother falling from changing table


BAL HARBOUR, Fla. — A video showing the dramatic moment a 9-year-old South Florida boy catches his baby brother from falling to the floor is going viral.

The 11-month-old falls more than four feet when his 9-year-old brother swoops in at the last minute.

Tila Levi, the mother of both boys, says she just turned her back for one second.

As for the baby’s brother, Joseph, he sees it all as a miracle.

“I would have never caught him, I can’t run that fast, so I felt like something just came and pushed me forward, and when it happened, I just ran and caught him,” Joseph said.

Tila Levi added that it’s even more of a miracle because she says Joseph is normally unable to carry the weight of his baby brother.

The video was released weeks after the actual incident occurred.
