LAWRENCE, MASS. (AP) - Two Massachusetts men are being hailed as heroes by police for catching a toddler who fell 40 feet from a home’s third-story window.

Robert Lemire tells the Eagle-Tribune that he was talking on his cell phone Sunday evening outside a pizza shop in Lawrence, about 25 miles north of Boston, when he saw the toddler dangling from a window across the street.

The 45-year-old father of two bolted across a busy street, where he met 23-year-old Alex Day, who had been inside the home at a Bible study meeting. Together, they caught the 18-month-old before she hit the ground.

The child’s father was caring for a newborn at the time.

Police Chief John Romero says “these guys are heroes, no question about it.”
