Heart-Stopping Moment Man Catches 1-Year-Old Who Fell Out Window (WATCH)​

Not all superheroes wear capes. A man in China is clear proof of that. He was passing by an apartment building when he noticed a baby dangling precariously from a windowsill. As people looked up in horror, this man immediately tried to get into position to catch the child. It's a scary and tense scene to watch.

You will be on the edge of your seat waiting as people throw things on the ground to hopefully pad the potentially deadly fall.

The man was reportedly seeking shelter from the rain when he noticed a child in danger. It's unclear what led to the baby being on the windowsill or where the parents were. How miraculous it is that he was in the right place at the right time. Seeing something like this, many others would probably have been too shell-shocked to act. It's not that they don't want to help, they may just be too stunned and unable to respond quickly enough. For some, the most natural reaction would be to stand there drop-jawed and in fear. This random stranger is truly an amazing human being.

How do you think you would have reacted?

Oh well I'm finally glad someone from China tried to save a childs life. I watched a youtube video of a 2 year old ran over by a truck and a motorcycle and these chinese people kept passing by the poor child not helping her what so ever. Unfortunately the girl died. Go find the video.
