During heavy thunderstorms in south China this weekend, a one-year-old baby apparently went looking for his mother by a window. Two men on the street below noticed the child’s precarious position and anticipated his fall.
Two local men, referred to only as Mr. Li and Mr. Hu, were close by and rushed to the child’s assistance.
“I didn’t think too much at the time. I was just afraid of failing to catch him. Some people put down cardboard to avoid serious injuries to the baby if I failed to catch him,” Li said in an interview with Reuters.
“It was nothing but human instinct to do so,” Hu added.
That was one lucky baby and one awesome catch.
