A video has gone viral of a 3-year-old boy who fell from a six-storey building in south-west China but was saved due to diligent neighbours.
The 3-year-old boy was filmed desperately clinging onto a balcony of a building in Chongqing city’s Jiulongpo district on Monday afternoon, July 29.
Fortunately, neighbours were quick to notice him as they quickly rallied around to save him. Some of the neighbours stood under him and waited to catch him if he fell.
The child eventually got tired of holding on, lost his grip and fell. Thankfully, the neighbours spread two large blankets below him and caught him before he could hit the ground. The child escaped unhurt.
It has now been revealed that the boy had been home alone and woke up from a nap to find out his grandmother wasn’t home.
According to Shangyou News, she had gone out to get groceries but the child didn’t know this so he began looking for her.
His search led him to climb on top of a sink on his balcony and tumbled over the glass railing, leaving him clinging on for his dear life.
The video filmed by neighbour Mr Liu shows the child kicking his legs and desperately trying to pull himself up.
A security guard of the residential district told video news site Pear that the child had been holding on for nearly four minutes before letting go.
The grandmother later arrived and took the boy home and his parents later took him to hospital.
