BEIJING: Dramatic images of two Chinese men catching a baby after he fell from a second storey window have been released by Chinese state media.
A man walking past a building during a thunderstorm in the southern province of Guangdong last Sunday spotted the baby, who had climbed dangerously onto the window sill, provincial broadcaster Guangdong TV reported.
In the video footage, he was joined by another bystander and both threw up their arms in anticipation of the baby’s fall.
Finally, the baby tumbled down into the pair’s arms.
Some reports on the incident said the baby was a one-year-old looking for his mother.
“I didn’t think too much at the time. I was just afraid of failing to catch him,” local media quoted the first man, surnamed Li, as saying.
The video has created a storm on social media worldwide, with thousands posting comments.
“Wow ... that is what I call a nice catch! That guy is a hero!” wrote one YouTube user.
