A Polish airport security guard is being hailed as a hero for making a shoestring catch of a falling baby.

According to the Telegraph, "the boy's father had placed his son on table as he busied himself collecting his possessions after passing through the airport's x-ray machine and metal detector."

The Telegraph quoted the guard, Grzegorz Paczek, as saying, "I was standing four to five meters away and I realised I had no chance of stopping him fall so I just threw myself along the ground with my arms outstretched. It was an instinctive reaction."

The incident occurred at Katowice International Airport on Nov. 23, according to LiveLeak.com, but video of the incident was just released. Paczek was given a bonus for his bravery.
