Postal carrier catches baby falling out window

Filed under: Toddlers Preschoolers, Preschoolers, Health & Safety: Babies, In The News

Lisa Harrell, an Albany, NY postal carrier, got a surprise delivery this week when a baby fell out of a second story window and into her arms while she was delivering the mail. Harrell said she looked up and saw the baby in the window over the doorway, and the next thing she knew, there she was.

The baby's mother said that she had placed the baby on a bed in an upstairs room and had turned her back for only a moment. The baby is apparently unhurt and no charges are being filed. Harrell is credit with saving the baby's life.

Spring is here, and this story is a good reminder to keep an eye on those open windows. A screen is often not strong enough to hold a child's weight, so if you have kids sleeping or playing in upstairs bedrooms with open windows, a window guard is good idea.
