9-year-old saves baby brother from fall 00:42

A Florida woman is counting her blessings after video captured what could have been her worst nightmare. 

The mom was changing her 1-year-old baby named Eitan when she turned her back for just a few seconds. The baby then rolled off the changing table.


But -- just before the baby hits the ground -- his 9-year-old brother Joseph makes a diving catch.

The mom said she had turned to talk to one of her other five kids, when the almost tragic incident unfolded. 

The family said they shared the video as a reminder for others that looking away even just for a second can be very dangerous.

To see the amazing catch, watch the video above.
