NEW YORK (AP) - The daughter of former New York Yankees manager Joe Torre is getting props from her dad for catching a baby who had tumbled off a second-floor fire escape in Brooklyn.

Torre said in a statement Wednesday that he is "very proud of my daughter Cristina's actions today during an incident in Brooklyn involving a small child." Torre is now Major League Baseball's executive vice president of baseball operations.

Police say a 44-year-old woman caught a 1-year-old boy after he fell from the apartment building but did not identify the bystander. They say the baby somehow climbed onto the fire escape. That's when the woman caught the baby as she walked on the sidewalk below.

Police say the baby is stable. The parents were arrested and charged with reckless endangerment.
