A Beijing woman walking by an apartment building caught a two-year-old girl after the toddler fell from a 10-story fall.
Wu Juping "kicked off her high-heeled shoes " and ran to catch the girl after she saw her dangling from the window. She adds:
"It was so urgent. I saw her when she was about to fall and rushed there, and after tens of seconds she fell off. I thought to myself 'I should stretch my arms to her. Because I am right here, I must get her.' Then I made it. I caught her in my arms."
The impact of the fall sent both of them crumbling to the ground. The girl survived, but is in critical condition with internal bleeding and unspecified injuries. Wu was left with a broken arm.
The girl was in her grandmother's care at the time, but she had left to run an errand and left the toddler unattended.
Inexcusable! Thank goodness this woman was walking by and had the courage to try to save the child! What a hero!
