Postal Carrier Catches Falling Baby

Lisa Harrell changed her postal route Monday because she had an Express Mail package to deliver. She was at the proper address at 11AM when a one-year-old baby girl fell out of a half-opened second story window!
"I noticed the upstairs window open halfway," she said. "The baby fell right into my arms. Everything happened so quick."

The baby was screaming as she fell, Harrell said, and afterward. But paramedics from the Albany Fire Department examined her and found no visible injuries.

No charges were filed against the baby’s mother, Brenda Morales, but child protective services was notified. Harrell denies that she is a hero, saying she was in the right place at the right time. Link -via Arbroath

Fate? Sounds too coincidental. Probably, the mother did it intentionally. She dropped the baby, intending for the letter carrier to catch it. Whatever twisted cry for help it was, she possibly didn't mean to actually harm the baby, just make it look like it was in danger, get in the news, and get some charitable donations for her plight.

Or, maybe the mother was trying to kill two birds with one stone - eliminate the baby AND the letter carrier at the same time.
