Nice catch! Skydiving instructor saves toddler


HOUSTON, Texas (KPRC) – Jesse “Tex” Leos knew he’d saved the day just moments after he caught a falling child while on the job at Houston’s iFly indoor skydiving facility.

“Just out of the corner of my eye, I saw the child fall and didn’t have that much time to think about it, and next thing I know I’m holding the kid,” Leos said.

Leos was seen on surveillance video snagging a child who lost their balance while standing on the counter at the indoor-skydiving facility.

The man accompanying the child quickly reaches over the counter to offer assistance while Leos celebrates his reactions with a quick flex and thumbs up to the security camera.

“You’re always on your game right when you’re either in the wind tunnel or in the sky, but I guess some of that obviously bleeds over to outside the wind tunnel,” he says.
