A 9-year-old Paramus gymnast was headed for disaster when her coach caught her just in time.
Hezly Rivera is an aspiring elite gymnast at ENA Paramus.
If not for Coach Craig Zappa catching her, she may have landed on her head during a tumbling pass -- full twist into double backflip.
"Our job is to protect the athletes and we care about their safety," Zappa told Daily Voice.
"We’ll go to great lengths to make sure they’re safe at all times."
