Joe Torre’s daughter Cristina Torre saves falling baby
Cristina Torre saves a very lucky year-old boy who slipped off through an awning of a Brooklyn building. Cristina Torre, 44, said she was drinking coffee outside Little Cupcake Bake Shop on Third Ave. in Bay Ridge when a commotion ensued as bystanders saw baby boy Dillin Miller dangling from the awning of a frozen yogurt shop next door at about 10 a.m.
“He looked like he was balancing on one of the railings,” Torre said. “I didn’t really know what was going to happen. . . . You just move into action — you don’t really think about it.”
Torre said she tried to tell the baby, dressed in a white onesie, not to move as another bystander called 911.
“I’m talking to him saying, ‘Don’t come down, stay there.’ . . . He helped himself with his arms. He was dangling. I knew he would be flipping very soon,” she said.
The baby dropped and Torre made a life-saving catch. “He literally landed in my arms,” she said. “It was a relief. I’m just glad he was safe.”
