With his third-floor apartment ablaze, the only thing one father could do to save his 3-year-old daughter was to trust his neighbors below and throw her off the side of the building.
That terrifying moment was caught on camera in Wenzhou early yesterday morning. After neighbors successfully caught the man’s daughter on a mattress, the father also begins to scale down the building before leaping onto the mattress below.
According to NetEase, both the father and daughter have been rushed to the hospital and are in stable conditions. Meanwhile, the neighbors are being hailed as heroes online. “Emergency services are no match for community uncles and aunties,” one netizen commented.
