Amazing video footage out of China shows a toddler falling from a fourth-story air conditioning unit outside an apartment building. Bystanders had placed blankets on the landing below in an attempt to soften the impact, but it was a well-positioned adult man who secured the child as he ricocheted towards a dangerous edge.

According to initial reports, the toddler had locked his grandmother outside the apartment before crawling out the window onto the A/C unit. He climbed precariously around to the back side of the machine where he held on for a few seconds.

After a few tense moments, the child lost his grip and fell four stories. The hero man reached up and caught the child as he neared a ledge, pulled him in, and carried him away on his shoulders to frantic family members.
