A nine-year-old boy is being called a hero this morning because he made an amazing catch after his baby brother fell from a changing table.  Now his mom is sharing video that she says might have people calling her a bad mother, because she wants to warn others.

The mom from Florida says she turned her back for just seconds, and her baby rolled off the changing table.  That's when the baby's older brother jumped in, sprinting over to catch the baby before he hit the floor.
The older brother says something helped him make that amazing catch.

"I felt like something just came and pushed me forward, and when it happened, I just ran and caught him," he said.  "I would never be able to do that again, because I can't carry my brother."

The mom is calling the incident a miracle.  She says she wants to share her story because she wants people to see just how quickly a tragedy can happen.  The baby who fell is ok.
