    Hero granny catches baby who dangled, fell 15 feet from window

    Nice catch, granny!

    Svetlana Sanarova, 64, was walking home from a supermarket in the Russian city of Novokuznetsk on July 21 when, out of the corner of her eye, she saw a toddler clinging to a second-floor window.

    The grandmother dropped her bags and rushed to the window with her arms held out.

    And she arrived just in time.

    CCTV revealed that she caught the boy named Egor after his 15-foot fall. Egor’s father, Dmitry Teryokhin, 27, ran down to retrieve his son after Sanarova’s life-saving act.

    “I thought, if I didn’t catch him, he would crash before my eyes,” said Sanarova, according to East2West news service. “I needed to run and catch, or it would be much worse. He turned out to be rather heavy, but I did not think about the risk at that moment.”

    Teryokhin then thanked her but did not ask her name. The hero grandmother left the scene and went to her bench. It took six days until she was identified and honored by authorities after many posts on social media.

    Teryokhin had thought that his wife was looking after the boy, although she had gone to get a bottle for their other child. The couple has a 4-year-old daughter and 18-month-old twins — the boy who fell and his sister.

    In return for her act, Teryokhin gave her 1,000 rubles, or $13.56. However, she refused to accept the money “because this offended me.” Teryokhin put the rubles in her bag, although she acknowledged, “I don’t need it.”

    “I didn’t think about any risk. I was only afraid that he would die,” she explained to Ruptly news agency. “And then I worried about what happened to him, until I read in the newspaper that he got away with only minor bruises.”
