A stranger, Byron Campbell, was standing there with his arms out, convincing the mother to let go.

“She trusted me and she dropped the baby and I caught the baby,” he said.

“I just told the mom I wouldn’t drop the baby. Then she let go and I caught it. I held on like a football and didn’t let go,” Campbell said.

“It was terrifying,” said Shuntara Thomas in tears, “I didn’t know if I was going to come down with her or if that would be the last time that I was holding my child.”
