(Newser) – Talk about reflexes: A mom who saw her baby tumble out a second-story window yesterday went flying after him, smashing through the glass and grabbing his foot, the AP reports. The Spokane, Wash., mom held onto her 14-month-old boy until his shoe fell off—by which time the boy's grandmother had come outside to catch him. "The baby actually did fall," said a police spokeswoman. "Grandma caught him and mom fell in the bushes nearby. She's pretty scraped up."

The baby and grandma also went to the hospital, but weren't seriously hurt. "The baby is going to be fine," the spokeswoman said. The boy had been jumping around on a bed when he stumbled over a pillow and fell out the partly-open window. (Read more baby stories.)
