    A 9-year-old South Florida boy is being hailed a hero after a camera caught him catching his baby brother as the infant fell from a changing table.

    Tila Levi had placed the 11-month-old boy on the table in their Bal Harbour home and briefly looked away when he started to roll off. Video from her home showed her older son, Joseph, reach out and catch the baby before he hit the ground.

    "In the beginning, I was very embarrassed. I felt like I had stopped paying attention and I was an irresponsible mother," said Levi.

    Levi credits her son's quick reflexes with saving the baby from being injured or worse.

    "He didn't analyze...nothing. He simply wanted to help his brother. For me, as a mother, that is a dream," said Levi.
