A city bus driver says he was thinking of his own young daughter when he rushed to catch a 7-year-old girl plunging three stories from a New York building Monday – an action caught on video.

“Please let me catch her, please let me catch her,” Stephen St. Bernard, 52, recalled thinking. “That’s all I could say. Let me catch the little baby.”

“I think about my daughter, and you know, she’s a little kid,” he said.

St. Bernard, an MTA bus driver of 10 years, was returning home to Coney Island from his job at about 2 p.m. when he heard screams coming from a building courtyard.
