NEW YORK (CNN) - A New York City bus driver is being called a hero after catching a little girl who fell out of a third story window.  It was all caught on camera Monday afternoon.

The driver said he saw the 7-year-old crawl onto an air conditioner and start dancing.
He says he tried to keep her calm and then she lost her balance.

The little girl is fine.  Her rescuer suffered a muscle tear in his arm, but he says he'll be okay.

The NYPD says no charges have been filed against the girl's parents.
