Two men in south China became international heroes Sunday when their amazing actions were caught on video.
A baby boy, presumed to be looking for his mother, climbed onto a window during a violent thunderstorm.
A man, now identified as Mr. Li, saw the baby about to fall. He ran across the road in an attempt to catch the child if it did end up falling.
The other man, who has been identified as Mr. Hu, also witnessed what was happening. He then ran to Mr. Li to join his rescue efforts.
It was also reported that other residents put soft material on the ground to break the child’s fall.
“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,” Mr. Li told The Irish Times. Mr. Hu then added,“It was nothing but human instinct to do so.”
