Postmen catch toddler as she tumbles from window

A group of postal workers found themselves in the right place at the right time just as a toddler fell from a fifth-floor window in eastern China.

CCTV captured the moment they rallied around to catch the girl, who escaped unharmed except for a bruise on her eye.

The postal workers were on a morning break in Geshuiyang village in Zhejiang Province when they heard the girl crying above them.

The two-year-old's father told Chinese media that he and the girl's mother had left her napping for a few minutes while they went to a pharmacy.

One of the postal workers said he didn't have a chance to think and the decision to break her fall had been automatic.
