Italian Hero Banker Catches Toddler Falling from Fifth Floor Balcony

A 37-year-old banker from Turin, Italy, is being hailed as a hero after catching a toddler who fell from her family’s fifth floor balcony. Mattia Aguzzi and his girlfriend were walking to a bread shop in central Turin when they heard a man yelling for help from an upper floor apartment. Aguzzi quickly realized that a three-year-old girl was leaning out on the ledge, holding on with only two arms. He shouted to get her attention but when she didn’t respond, he calculated her trajectory and positioned himself below her. As she fell, he closed his eyes and hoped for the best, cushioning the blow as they both hit the ground.

Fortunately, the little girl survived and is reported to be “fine”. The mayor of Turin, Stefano Lo Russo, called for Aguzzi to be honored for his heroic actions, and Parliamentarian Camilla Laureti has recommended him for a national medal. Although Prime Minister Meloni didn’t officially call for recognition, she expressed her gratitude and praised Aguzzi’s promptness.

Despite being hailed as a hero, Aguzzi insists that he is not one. He said he acted instinctively and didn’t think of anything except doing what needed to be done. Aguzzi even jokingly mentioned that his extra weight may have played a role in his ability to catch the falling toddler.

The circumstances of the incident are currently under investigation by Italy’s Carabinieri security force. CNN has reached out to Aguzzi for comment.

This heartwarming story showcases the bravery and quick thinking of an ordinary citizen who found himself in an extraordinary situation. Mattia Aguzzi’s heroic act of catching a falling toddler has not only saved a life but also inspired a sense of gratitude and admiration from officials and the public alike. His selfless actions remind us of the potential for heroism within all of us and the power of a single moment to make a significant impact.
