Mail carrier saves baby falling from window 4/22/08

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A postal worker is credited with saving a 1-year-old girl's life by catching her after she fell out of a second-story window in Albany.

Lisa Harrell was delivering mail to a home late Monday morning when she noticed a baby in a window above the front door. Harrell says the next thing she knew, the baby had fallen into her arms.

When the baby's mother realized what happened, she ran outside and grabbed the girl from Harrell. The woman thanked Harrell and then ran down the street to her mother's house.

Paramedics checked the baby at the scene but found no injuries.

No charges are being filed against the mother, who says she had placed her daughter on a bed that was up against the window. The mother says her back was turned when her daughter crawled out the open window.

I have an 8 month old and hes fast. I wouldnt put him on my bed unless I was in it with him. I would never put him in a bed next to a window. She should be ticketed for stupidity...... She better count her blessings that the baby is ok.

Well she wasn't all that smart that is for sure. I agree that the baby should never have been left alone like that. The sad thing is that when I saw her on TV last night and she was describing that teh child had fallen out the window she kind of laughed as if there was nothing wrong with what she did. Duh!
