to keep other parents from making the same mistake. i know it's tough to see. >> 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 really, it was just a miracle. i must have done something right to be deserving of this little guy running in at the right time and catching him in the right moment. >>jennifer: if you watch the video again, you can see the the way his brother joseph swoops in and actually helps soften the blow, it prevents his head from hitting the wood floor. and what is sweet about this is the mother rushing to both children, hugging them close to her. according to the cdc, falls are the leading cause of injuries for all children. every day an estimated 8,000 children are tweeted in the u.s. emergency rooms from fall related injuries. that adds up to almost 2.8 million children each year and

6:34 am
75 tigers among the animals being rescued. to get five here, it's a pretty big deal. >> exactly. we're very happy to participate and it's interesting. it's sad these cats didn't need to find a new home. we're hoping that eventually we can get a law passed so there aren't going to be cats that continue to need rescuing but they did go to sanctuaries from minnesota to north carolina to florida to texas. >>reporter: and cats are just among the 110 animals rescued from what's been described as a failed facility in colorado. as far as their new home, what about here are they going to get to experience that they weren't getting to experience at their old home? >> we shifted a lot of cats around knowing the kalts were coming and they're going to have large enclosures, spacious dens.

6:37 am
>> don't be the person that parks all the way out as far away from the building as possible. >>russell: you don't want to get your car scratched. >> right. and also you want other people kind of mingling around your car to be extra eyes and ears, keep an eye out for those folks trying your door handle and maybe take your packages you have stored inside. park close to the building if possible. >>russell: i'm one of those that checks two or three times about locking my car, but i kno they? >> we do. we encounter a lot of burglaries where we find the car was left unlocked. if you have to hit the remote a couple of times to make sure it's locked or in your case, check the door handle a few times, that's a good idea. >>russell: walk among crowds. >> stay together with the group. shop with family members. a lot of people at work will put together a little shopping group. stay together with other people.
6:38 am
have a lot of packages or if somebody needs to hang out on the bench and watch the gifts while others go shop, it's just extra eyes and ears during the holiday season. when the criminals are definitely looking for folks to take advantage of. >>russell: on the same note, if you're shopping at night, shop with somebody, right? >> shob with somebody. make sure you're in a well lit area. if you're in the day and you know you're going to be there late in the night, the streetlights or parking lights and that's always a great idea. >>russell: if you have to go back to your car, put your purchases in the trunk. out of sight, out of mind. disrespect >> if you have an suv, take a blanket and cover the items in the suv or if possible, put it in the trunk so you don't have the criminal walking through, looking for packages just left on the front seat for them to take. >>russell: and there are also ways to conduct yourself that i
6:39 am
for ladies, let's explain how the best way to carry a purse. >> so the best way to carry a purse is in the front. if at all possible, don't take a purse or a handbag. for the holiday season, all you rally need is your i.d. and credit card or whatever form of payment but if you take a handbag, strap it to the front so it's not behind you or easily accessible. make sure it's zipper closed or snapped closed. >>russell: this i necessarily think about and it's geared toward men is carrying the wallet in the front pocket. >> a lot of people will try to take something out of your back pocket so if you can, put your wallet in the front pocket or like i mentioned before, put just your i.d. and your credit card in the front pocket and leave your wallet locked in the trunk of the car. >>russell: and don't carry a large amount of cash if you don't have to. this is really important what you all are doing, so chad and i
6:40 am
some of that video. you guys are out in force this time of year, aren't you? >> sure. we have a very robust presence in the holidays, all the way through new year's with the aviation units, volunteers, reserve deputies, foot patrol, all the above is our motto for the holiday season. just to add that extra element of protection for those holiday shoppers who probably get caught up in the excitement and the cheer of the want to make sure we're there to keep the criminal element away. >>russell: we have to run but also, thank you for coming in for chad today and also, undercover deputies as well, they may not be wearing the uniforms but they're there watching. >> exactly. a hidden presence, if you will. >>russell: we have to run. thanks. take care, man. >>laura: she may not be breaking the glass ceiling but she's breaking the galactic one.
