Video shows NYPD lifeguard who fell through sixth floor window


Heart-pounding video captures the second time tense NYPD officers rescued a 4-year-old boy who dove from a sixth-story window in the Bronx and took him to hospital.

The boy apparently pushed an air conditioner out of the window around noon Tuesday at NYCHA’s Patterson Homes on East 143rd Street in Mott Haven. Her mother lingered on the hour, on the line with the police.

Police were called to the building and located the child “conscious and alert lying on the sidewalk”, police said.
