NEW YORK — The daughter of legendary former Yankees manager Joe Torre was being hailed as a hero Wednesday, after she caught a 16-month-old baby that had fallen from an awning in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, reports CBS New York.



Everyone in the neighborhood was talking about how the baby was dangling from the awning of the Sweetie Frozen Yogurt shop at 9104 Third Ave. in Brooklyn, when Cristina Torre, 44, came to the rescue.

She happened to be walking along Third Avenue near 91st Street around 10 a.m. Wednesday when she saw the baby boy — Dillon Miller — hanging precariously.

All of a sudden, Dillon fell, and Torre, with her quick reflexes, was able to catch the baby in her arms before he hit the ground.
