Hero Cat Saves Baby From Falling Down Stairs In Heart-Stopping Video

A cat in Bogota,Colombia is being credited with saving a little boy’s life after security footage uploaded to Facebook last Friday showed it leap in front of the one-year-old to keep him from falling down a staircase.

In the security footage, the boy, Samuel, can be seen crawling on the floor of a home toward the stairs. The cat, named Gatubela, quickly jumps on top of the boy then inserts itself between the baby and a steep fall of approximately 12 steps.
