Dog-Walking Mom-to-Be Catches Toddler as He Falls From a 2nd Story Window

An Iowa mom-to-be caught a toddler when he fell from a second story window in Des Moins.

“I noticed the little boy was bending over the edge of the window, and he was throwing things out the window,” Kyrie Jones, who lives next door and was walking her dog, told KCCI.

First, she said, she tried to alert the 2-year-old boy’s mother, but she didn’t answer knocks or the doorbell. Then she called 911 and went back to the window.

“When I came back out, the baby was holding on the ledge hanging. So, I stood right underneath him just in case,” Jones said.

And he lost his grip, falling toward Jones, who is 33 weeks pregnant.

“He kind of hit my belly a little bit. I think the adrenaline kicked in, and I didn’t feel anything,” she said.

Jones said she held the boy until police arrived a few minutes later. And the child’s mother eventually came outside. Detectives and social services are following up, police said.

Jones says she’s “just glad I was there at the right time.”

“As long as the baby is safe, I am good,” she said.
