Baby caught after two-storey plunge in China

CCTV footage has captured the dramatic moment a baby was caught by a passerby after falling two storeys from a building in China.

The one-year-old had apparently got out of a window during a thunderstorm when he slipped from the building in Guangdong Province.

Cameras trained on the street below showed the hero, Mr Li, with his arms outstretched as the baby began to fall.

He then rushes forwards and clings on to the youngster despite the pouring rain.

Mr Lisaid: "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."
