Receptionist Leonardo Araujo was working on his computer last month when he heard Carlos Henrique scream.

Henrique had just placed his newborn son Enzo, cradled in a car seat, on the front desk counter of a medical clinic in Teófilo Otoni, a city in eastern Brazil. Within moments, the car seat tottered and his son fell out. Without looking, Araujo reached with his left arm and caught the baby on its descent.

After the catch, Araujo held Enzo in his arms for several minutes before placing him back in the car seat. The boy was not injured.

“It was God’s work. Actually, I am still in shock,” Henrique told Globo. “I just want to forget this moment and raise my son.”

Despite his composure under pressure, Araujo, who has reportedly worked in hospitals for 15 years, admits the moment frightened him.

“It was a big scare. For us, at least, because the baby remained calm,” Araujo said. “I was worried about his parents, who were in shock.”
