Former 'N Sync member saves toddler's life in Miami

MIAMI BEACH, FL (CNN) - Former pop superstar JC Chasez is being hailed a hero after saving a baby in Florida.

The former 'N Sync member was at a beach with friends on New Year's Day when a helicopter came close to the shoreline. Winds from the chopper sent umbrellas flying through the air and right toward a toddler.

Chasez sprung into action and got the umbrella just before it would have hit a 1-year-old girl.
