Former Yankees Manager’s daughter catches falling baby
NEW YORK, NY – Former New York Yankees manager Joe Torre’s daughter shows she’s a chip of the old block, after catching a baby who fell from a second floor fire escape.
According to New York Police, an unidentified woman, who was later identified as 44-year-old Cristina Torre, had the presence of mind to catch the falling 1-year-old Dillon Miller as the toddler fell from a second story Brooklyn apartment building.
Evidently Dillon had climbed out of the apartment and onto the fire escape just as Cristina was walking by on the sidewalk below.
Dillon is in stable condition after being taken to Lutheran Medical Center with minor injuries.
Cristina’s proud father confirmed the news in a statement on Wednesday. “I am very proud of my daughter Cristina’s actions today during an incident in Brooklyn involving a small child,” wrote Torre, “Fortunately for that child she was in the right place at the right time to lend a hand.”
Dillon’s parents aren’t doing so well after, 23-year-old Sam Miller and 24-year-old Tiffany Demitro were both arrested and charged with reckless endangerment and acting in a manner injurious to a child less than 17.
Joe Torre managed the Yankees from 1996 to 2007, with four World Series titles and six American League pennants. After a 29-year career as a manager, he retired in 2010.
