Video: Civilians Catch Falling Baby

The video of a baby’s amazing rescue has gone viral. Surveillance video shows a group of good Samaritans in China successfully catching a baby that fell from a second story window.

The child climbed onto a window ledge during a thunderstorm. They think he was looking for his mother. Witnesses sprang into action, laying down what appeared to be an ottoman, and even cardboard boxes to soften the landing if they weren’t able to catch him. As the video shows, those items weren’t needed. He fell right into a pair of arms, and is said to be okay.
