A man successfully caught a one-year-old baby who fell from a second-story window in south China, according to local reports.
The child who it was believed went looking for his mother, climbed onto the window ledge during a heavy thunderstorm in Xiaolan Town, Zhongshan City of Guangdong Province.
In the video a local man, identified as only as Mr Li, can be seen hurrying across the road and holding out his arms to catch the falling child.
Another man Mr Hu also rushed to the site to join in the rescue, along with other nearby residents who put several pieces of cardboard and a sofa on the ground under the window in the hope of breaking the child’s fall
“I didn’t think too much at the time. I was just afraid of failing to catch him ” said Mr Li.
