The incident happened in September but the boy’s mum Tila, was embarrassed by what happened and so didn’t share it until now.

Her back had been turned because her son Zion, had asked her a question about his homework.

The mum-of-five said: “I was just getting everyone ready for bed. I was home alone with the five kids and at first I said, ‘I messed up, I did something wrong’.

“But then I realised it was just a miracle. I must have done something right to have been deserving of this little guy, running in at the right time and catching him at the right moment.”

Joe said: “I would have never caught him. I can’t run that fast.

“So I felt like something just came and pushed me forward, and when it happened, I just ran and caught him.”

Both Tila and Joseph appeared on Good Morning Britain to tell Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid what had happened.

When asked to describe the moment, Joe said: “I saw him rolling off so once I saw him, I just ran.

“I knew I had to catch him, so I ran and caught him.”

Tila says her son Joseph is a hero, but he is just happy that his brother is safe.
