Skydive instructor makes incredible one-handed catch of toddler falling off counter
The is the moment a skydive instructor showed his cat-like reflexes to rescue a baby falling from a counter-top at a store.
When a customer's young son went tumbling off the front counter at iFly, an indoor skydiving center in Houston, Texas, employee Jesse "Tex" Leos reacted instantly with a one-armed save.
A clearly relieved Jesse realised he had made an amazing grab and he can be seen on camera showing a quick flex of his life-saving arms.
"Just out of the corner of my eye I saw the child fall and didn’t have that much time to think about it, and next thing I know I’m holding the kid,"he told KPRC.
He posted the video online and it has gone viral through Facebook and Reddit.
"Definitely my reflexes were quick, and I can attest that’s to the training that we do every day here,'' he told KPRC. "We both just kind of had a laugh at it, and it was kind of one of those ‘that just happened’ kind of moments that turned out great."
