CCTV footage in China shows this incredible moment a man caught a baby who fell out of a two-storey building.

Residents in Guangdong Province scrambled to catch the one-year-old who climbed onto a window ledge while looking for his mother.

They laid down cardboard and a sofa to try to avoid any serious injuries if he fell.

Mr Li, who caught the infant said he didn’t think too much of it the time and was afraid he might not be able to catch the baby, but said it was just human instinct to save the child.

Difficult words: scramble (hurry), window ledge (narrow horizontal surface at the bottom of the window).
