OMG! A South Florida boy named Joseph Levi has been called a ‘hero’ after jumping to his little brother’s rescue, shortly after he fell off a changing table! Luckily, the 11-month-old was caught without hesitation before hitting the floor! See the shocking clip.
Tila Levi was focused on getting her five kids to bed in her Bal Harbour, Florida home last month, when her 11-month-old baby began to crawl on his changing table, before flipping over the edge! The shocking moment was captured on surveillance footage and released Nov. 16, showing her son Joseph Levi, 9, dashing to his rescue. Joseph jumped several feet without hesitation, preventing his brother from crashing to the ground by outstretching his arms. Tila revealed to WSVN that she first blamed herself. “Then I realized that, really, it was a miracle.”
Tila added, “I must have done something right to have been deserving of this little guy, running in at the right time and catching him at the right moment.” She is beyond thankful for Joseph’s quick and stunning save, admitting, “I just said to him, ‘You just saved your brother. You’re a hero.” Joseph believes his reaction was due to a higher power, since the baby weighs nearly 30 pounds and is too heavy for him to carry. He said, “I would have never caught him, and I can’t run that fast, so I felt like something came and just pushed me forward.”
Tila revealed a friend encouraged her to share the video with the world, according to 7News. “One of my friends who saw it said to me, ‘You are such a brave person, and you always try to help other people. I’m not telling you right now, but eventually, one day, maybe you should think about sharing it, because you never know whose life you’re gonna change and who you can help.” It certainly was jaw-dropping to see the infant dangling a leg off the table, moments before rolling off the side to a four-foot drop. It appeared like he was going to land head-first, but luckily Joseph saw the whole thing going down and took action!
