Neighbors catch boy dangling from sixth floor balcony with blankets

This wonderful news comes to us from China.

When a 3-year-old boy was left dangling helplessly from a sixth-floor apartment building balcony, a group of his neighbors pulled off the most ingenious rescue mission possible to save him.

CCTV footage from the city of Chongqing shows the boy hanging from the tips of his fingers while a crowd of concerned pedestrians gathered below.

Though the boy can be seen trying to climb back up onto the balcony he is unable to pull himself to safety.

In the meantime, property management worker Zhu Yanhui was scrambling desperately to find a way to save the boy.

“I looked up and saw a little child was dangling up there. My first reaction was to find something to catch him. I thought about rushing over there and catch him with my bare hands, but that would not have worked,” he says. “My only thought was to keep him safe.”

With the help of several building residents, sanitation workers and security guards, he grabbed a blanket and stretched it out underneath the boy as a makeshift safety net.

About 10 seconds later, the boy fell from the balcony and landed safely in the stretched out blanket below.

The boy was taken to the hospital as a precautionary step but doctors declared him hale and hearty.
