(CNN) - A heart-stopping moment at an airport in Poland ended with relief after a security officer caught a baby that had fallen from a luggage counter.

In surveillance video captured at Katowice Airport in southern Poland last month, a father can be seen placing his baby on a luggage counter, then quickly glancing away.

That's when the baby somehow fell off the table. Luckily, a quick-thinking security guard dove to the rescue, catching the child just inches before he hit the tile floor.

The officer reportedly received a bonus for his act of heroism.
