EASTON – The 11-second video shows a little girl sprinting toward the springboard, attempting a tricky flip maneuver, before missing the mark on the vault and falling to the side of a stack of tumbling mats.

That's when Easton's Chad Buczek, a coach and owner of Metro South Gymnastics Academy Canton, jumps into action and catches the girl a split-second before she hits the ground. There were gasps from the crowd as she fell, but then applause for Buczek for his quick reflexes.

"Honestly, it’s just instincts," said Buzcek, a Bridgewater native. "I knew it was off. And I knew I had to get in there."

The short clip from the Nashville Nights Gymnastics Competition held in Tennessee about a month ago then went viral in gymnastics circles on social media. But it didn't stop there.

Buczek, 9-year-old gymnast Cherrish Remy, of Stoughton, and Remy's mother, Justine Ramos, were later invited to appear on a segment of Inside Edition on national broadcast television on Friday night to talk about the quick catch. After that, the video caught the attention of Good Morning America, which had a segment about the video on Saturday.

Ramos, who captured the video, said she feared for her daughter after seeing her heading to the ground, before Buczek stepped in with lightning speed and caught her in his arms.

"It was terrifying," said the grateful mother, during her Inside Edition appearance. "I instantly broke out into a sweat."

Buczek said he was surprised with how the video gained so much traction and caught the attention of the national entertainment program. Buczek said he's not sure if he saved Remy from certain injury, but he knew she was headed for a fall based on her technique being slightly off in the approach.

"She probably would have landed on her feet," he said. "The only issue would have been the cement."

Buczek said catching kids heading for a fall is actually pretty routine for him. This time, it was just captured on a video that was widely shared on the internet. Buczek said he was surprised when Inside Edition came looking for an interview.

"For me, it wasn’t as big of a deal," the Easton man said. "It just kind of happens."

But Buczek said that with a lot of negative attention on gymnastics in recent years, over abuse scandals involving the USA Gymnastics program, he was glad to be part of a feel-good gymnastics story.

"It’s crazy," Buczek said over his 15 minutes of fame. "I’ve had mixed reactions. I’m not one to really love the spotlight. ... It's pretty cool. My friend who coaches gymnastics in Arizona texted me and said one of his athletes came up to him, and showed him the video and said, 'Would you catch me like this?'"
