A 1-year-old boy fell out of a window in New York. He was dangling from an awning, then he dropped. Waiting below with open arms was Cristina Torre. Her dad, a former catcher, told the New York Post his daughter always had quick hands.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep with news of a miracle save. A one-year-old boy climbed out the window of an upper floor apartment. Suddenly that baby was dangling from an awning of a yogurt shop on Manhattan's East side. The parents were asleep. The baby fell safely into the arms of Cristina Torre. The daughter of baseball manager and former catcher Joe Torre made the catch herself. Joe Torre tells the New York Post his daughter always did have quick hands.

It's MORNING EDITION.
