  • Man catches 2-year-old girl as she falls 3 floors

    KISSIMMEE, Florida (AP) -- 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.

    The momentum sent both crashing into a bush, but the girl only suffered 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

      Mick Jagger is in better shape than far too many NBA players. It's up in the air whether the same can be said of Keith Richards.

              "I just happened to be at the right place at the right time," Alan Burns, 43, said Wednesday. The funny thing was, just before she fell, I could have sworn I saw this fellow in a Cubs hat, sunglasses, and a Walkman reaching for her on the platform."
