Baby caught after falling out of second-storey window in China

A man successfully caught a one-year-old baby who fell from a second-storey window in China, according to local reports.

The baby, who is believed to have been looking for his mother, climbed on to the window during a heavy thunderstorm, recalled a vendor who lives in the opposite building in Xiaolan Town, Zhongshan City of Guangdong Province.

Mr Li said he hurried across the road and held out his arms in the hope of catching the falling baby.

Another local resident, rushed to the site to join the rescue, along with other nearby residents who put several pieces of cardboard and a sofa on the ground under the window, the video footage showed.

He said: "I didn't think too much at the time. I was just afraid of failing to catch him. Some people put down cardboard to avoid serious injuries to the baby if I fail to catch him".

"It was nothing but human instinct to do so", said Mr Hu, the other local resident.
