Catch of the Day

December 15th, 2005

New York Housing Authority Supervisor Felix Vasquez wins my gold medal of the day. Outside of a building on fire, he was in the right place at the right time.

A panicked mother literally threw her infant out of a window right above him. Without time to think, he actually caught the baby, upside down, but it wasn't breathing. He gave it mouth to mouth resucitation, and then it started crying.

Quote of the day, "Vasquez is the catcher for the Housing Authority baseball team -- which has won its division three years in a row."

I'd give Vasquez a slap on the butt for this one.
