Baby on the balcony - level 1, A12

A baby in China’s Guangdong Province is hanging by her head when she fell down through the floor on her family’s third floor balcony.

The video shows the four-year-old girl who is hanging about 20 metres above the ground. And a man named Zhou Chong risks his life when he tries to hold her up.

“I thought that I could put my hand up and she could stand on it. She had more power in her feet and it wasn’t so dangerous for her.”

Some people met on the street under the balcony with bed sheets. The twenty-three-year-old man held the girl up for ten minutes and then people saved her.

“I didn’t think much and only tried to hold the girl. When I got down to the ground, my legs felt a little weak. And when I got home, both my legs were in pain for two days.”

The family of the girl thanked Zhou for his big help.
