British tourist catches girl in fall from Florida hotel balcony
"A toddler who fell from the fourth floor of a hotel in Orlando, Florida landed safely in the arms of a British tourist. Helen Beard, of Worksop, ran under where 16-month-old Jah-Nea Myles was hanging from a balcony, at about 11pm on Wednesday.
"She caught the girl after the child lost her grip and fell, striking the third floor balcony on her way down, local police said.
"Beard told investigators that she broke the girl's fall before the child slipped from her arms and hit the ground. Paramedics then took the girl to hospital. Her mother, Helena Myles, said her daughter was "perfectly fine" with "not a scratch on her".
""I'm thanking the Lord above right now for saving my child's life. I'm also thanking that lady because she was an angel sent from heaven," she said."
