Nice Catch - Who says Spanish People arent Good for Something

Two Children Were Playing In Open Second-Floor Window

POSTED: 4:57 am PST December 13, 2006

ARLINGTON, Va. -- It took a second or two for Jaimen Ortiz to fully comprehend what he was seeing: two toddlers playing in an open second-floor window, and one of them hanging from the window sill.

So Ortiz hopped a fence and ran to the apartment building. Just as he got there, the 2-year-old girl fell, screaming. Ortiz put out his arms and caught her cleanly, perhaps saving her life and certainly preventing serious injury.

"If I had delayed one more second, she would have fallen to the ground," Ortiz said through a Spanish interpreter, recalling the Oct. 13 incident.

The toddlers' father was charged with reckless endangerment.

Ortiz's quick thinking was honored Tuesday in Arlington, where the County Board presented him a certificate of recognition for his heroism.

Ortiz, 29, seemed slightly overwhelmed by the attention he received Tuesday as he fielded multiple interview requests.

"I have a 5-year-old child, and you never know. Maybe someday he might need help like I was able to give to this girl," he said.

While he was unaccustomed to the recognition, it's not the first time he has been a hero. As a teenager growing up in Guatemala, he helped save the wife of a friend from drowning.

...and then quickly deported.

Re: Nice Catch - Who says Spanish People arent Good for Something

aaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh ok wtf Spanish people are from Spain!! is he from Spain hu? hu? HU? , no thats right he's from Guatemala which makes him a Guatemalan or a hispanic person but not a Spanish person. And why would he be deported, the fact that he is Guatemalan does not mean he's illegal.....

All I can hear when I read this is one of my buddies saying, "People from Latin America aren't Spanish."

He a couple of generations removed from Spanish relatives, like Europeans, from Spain.
