Bus driver/hero catches girl after 3-story fall: Video of the day

A Brooklyn bus driver picked up another occupation on Monday: hero. Steve St. Bernard caught a 7-year-old girl as she plunged three stories from a Coney Island apartment building. The girl reportedly had crawled out atop an air-conditioning unit in her family's third-floor apartment. Video shows her swaying and dancing as onlookers gather around. St. Bernard (yes, that's really his last name) stood directly under the girl.

Senh: From the headline, I thought he caught her while driving a bus. I know it doesn't make sense. Great catch, nonetheless. That little girl was very lucky.
