One of the things the internet has taught me is that people of all ages fall out of buildings at a much more alarming rate than I had ever considered. There’s a ton of videos of folks caching other folks but this recent footage from China might be the most incredible to date.
In the footage you see a man looking up and waiting with open arms to catch a baby boy who was on a window ledge. The child is never seen until being caught, adding to the suspense of the moment:
The baby-catcher, identified as a Mr. Li, told a local news reporter, “I didn’t think too much at the time. I was just afraid of failing to catch him. It was nothing but human instinct to do so.”
