In Guangzhou where a child has been saved from a deadly fall, thanks to a man risking his life to help her.

This heroic moment happened last week. A 4 years old girl was very close to a deadly plunge after accidentally falling through the balcony railing. Luckily, she got her head stuck. Her whole body was dangling over a 20 meters drop.

Zhou Chong, a 23 years old migrant worker who happened to see the girl, propped the toddler up with his hand for almost 10 minutes.
