    Child tumbles 3 stories into man’s arms
    Only a scratch for 2-year-old; mother charged with neglect

    KISSIMMEE, Fla. - A 2-year-old girl fell three stories from a resort walkway and safely into the arms of a man who had been reading a book by the pool and raced to save her.

    <TABLE style="PADDING-LEFT: 15px" cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 align=right border=0><TBODY><TR><TD class=textSmallGrey vAlign=top align=middle></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>The momentum sent both crashing into a bush, but the girl suffered only a bump and some scratches Saturday.

    “I just happened to be at the right place at the right time,” Alan Burns, 43, said Wednesday.

    Burns said he was enjoying his weekend getaway at the Dorsan Suites when he heard a woman screaming. He looked up to see the toddler hanging from a railing on an outdoor walkway.

    Burns and the woman ran underneath the child when the girl let go and fell into Burns’ arms.

    The baby’s mother showed up several minutes later and was arrested on a charge of child neglect, police said. The woman was released on $1,000 bail

    At least he knew what to do with the "ball" after making the catch and instead of spiking the ball like a moron, he presumably handed it to an official.

    He could have pulled a cell phone out from behind one of the trees and celebrated with a call home to his wife :p

    Seriously.. nice story, good thing he was there.
