Speaking about the strange rescue, Lynch admitted it was the first time that he made such rescue. “I don’t know if I ever want to make another one like that,” Nicholas told.
He told that the rescue felt a lot closer to him because he was certain that the child’s head had almost slammed against the floor while falling from the crib.
“I felt like he was inches away from the floor. After reviewing the video, it was way closer than we thought,” he further elaborated.
The video begins with the 2-year-old child standing up on his crib and trying to walk out of it. He struggles to get out from his crib for a while before finally deciding to jump over it.
As he tries to walk out from the crib, he lost his footing and went tumbling down the bed. It almost seemed certain that the baby would slam against the floor.
