A New York postal worker got an unexpected delivery -- a falling baby.window.

Harrell caught the 1-year-old in her arms and said she just happened to be in the right place at the right time.

Harrell usually delivers mail to that house two hours later, but arrived sooner to drop off the package before noon.

"Next thing I know, the baby fell on me, and I caught the baby," Harrell said.

Police say the baby fell out because the mother left the window open with the screen up, but Albany does not have any laws requiring bars or safety devices on windows.
