It looks like Joe Torre's daughter may have picked up a trick or two from her old man!
Cristina Torre was taking a walk in Brooklyn when she noticed that a 1 year-old boy had slipped off a fire escape and was falling two stories!
Luckily, there was an awning directly below the child's apartment and she was quick on her feet, as the child bounced safely into her arms, avoiding major injury!
The former baseball manager and proud pops spoke out about his daughter's heroic actions, saying:
"I am very proud of my daughter Cristina's actions today during an incident in Brooklyn involving a small child. Fortunately for that child she was in the right place at the right time to lend a hand."
According to NYPD Detective James Duffy, the little boy was able to crawl through an opening in the window that was only blocked off by a piece of cardboard and his parents were charged with child endangerment. Three other kids were also removed from the apartment and are currently under the care of Child Protective Services.
Thankfully, Joe's daughter was able to prevent what could have been a horrible accident by making the catch of the year!
Way to go, Cristina!
