St. Bernard saves Keyla McCree, 7, from fall in New York Alps

NOMINATIVE determinism hero of the year is Steve St. Bernard, who – naturally – rescued a 7-year-old girl named Keyla McCree who fell from a third-story window in Brooklyn. St Bernard caught her.

Nominative determinism is the process whereby people’s lives are unconsciously shaped by their names. So. Mr St. Bernard is always more likely than, say, a Mr Slipper to save a child from an accident high up in the urban Alps.

Says the human St. Bernard:  “I just prayed that I’d catch her. I was right underneath her.” 

The child had crawled out of her apartment window and reached the top of her home’s air conditioner. There, she began to clown around.

“I went over there to make sure if she fell I could catch her. I’m not a hero — anybody would have done it. I did it out of normal instincts….I thought to myself, let me get over there and catch her. I just hope I don’t drop her.”

The girl’s mother, Saleema McCree, tells the New York Post: “She’s fine. Not a scratch on her. The man caught her, thank God. It’s a miracle.”

No. Thank a St Bernard. Now, let him buy a drink. Brandy do you..?
