A delivery man in Vietnam is being hailed as a real-life superhero after he saved a little girl, who fell from the 12th floor. The jaw-dropping moment was caught on camera and is now going viral, not only in the country but worldwide.
In the video, captured by a neighbour, the 2-year-old child was seen climbing out of the balcony of a 16-story building in Hanoi. The toddler left onlookers freaked out as she was seen dangling from the highrise by just holding onto a railing of the balcony.
Neighbours in a building opposite could be heard crying out aloud in fear, calling out to the girl. However, seconds later the child started to lose her grip and was seen falling, with the person recording the video screaming, fearing the worst has happened. Luckily, the girl’s fall was broken and the delivery personnel caught her in his arms.
The man, identified as Nguyen Ngoc Manh, 31, was sitting in his truck, waiting to make a delivery at 5pm on Sunday when he heard a child crying, he told local news outlet the Anninhthudo. A woman started screaming and he stuck his head out of the window to see what was going on.
The child was taken to the National Children’s Hospital where doctors told local media she had dislocated her hip but suffered no other injuries. Manh too later realised that he had sprained his arms.
