NEW YORK, July 17 (UPI) -- A New York City man caught a 7-year-old autistic girl falling from her third-story bedroom, performing what her mother called "a miracle."

Keyla McCree was playing with the air conditioner unit in a window of her Brooklyn borough apartment when she fell through the opening and was caught by a neighbor, Steven St. Bernard, 52, the New York Post reported.

St. Bernard ran underneath the girl when he saw her playing in the window and was able to break her fall, saving her from potentially serious injuries, WABC-TV, New York, reported.

"She's fine," said the girl's mom, Shaleema McCree. "Not a scratch on her. The man caught her, thank God. It's a miracle."

McCree and St. Bernard, who suffered a torn bicep tendon, were both treated and released from Coney Island Hospital.
