According to E! Online, the former N’Sync-er was lounging out on the beach in Miami on New Year’s Day, when a helicopter hovering too low sent a large sun umbrella flying toward a 1-year-old girl.
The “America’s Best Dance Crew” judge quickly ran to the rescue and blocked the umbrella from hitting the baby.
The mother of the child, Netali Nissim, told E! that Chasez is nothing short of a hero:
“Shirel is safe because of him…I want to tell him thank you from the bottom of my heart. If it had not been for him, my daughter could have been hurt.”
E! has obtained a picture of the girl from the mother, and she is absolutely adorable.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Check it out below, and thank goodness for boy band heroics!
