A group of passersby in Jiuquan city, Gansu province managed save a 5-year-old girl as she plummeted from the 4th-floor window of her apartment building by using a blanket as a makeshift safety net.
The neighbors spotted the girl hanging from outside of the window of her home and quickly scrambled to find a blanket in case she slipped. Video surveillance shows the girl falling towards the ground before being caught by the blanket. She only suffered minor injuries in the fall.
Earlier this year, a man in Guangzhou province caught a one-year-old infant with his bare hands after the child fell from the second-floor window of an apartment building. In this case, the infant had been left alone by his mother and he’d climbed to the window to look for her.
