Baby on the balcony - level 2, A12
A baby in China’s Guangdong Province is hanging by her head after she fell down through the floor on her family’s third floor balcony.
The video shows the four-year-old hanging about 20 metres above the ground and a man named Zhou Chong risks his own life to hold her up.
“I thought that I could reach my hand up and let her stand on it and she would have more power in her feet and be in less danger.”
Some people met on the street below with bed sheets. The twenty-three-year-old man held the girl up for almost ten minutes before she was rescued.
“I didn’t think too much and just kept going. When I got down to the ground, my legs felt a little weak. And when I got home, both my legs were painful for two days.”
The family of the girl who managed to escape thanked Zhou for his brave help.
