Toddler Falls Five Storeys, Caught By Pedestrians

Chinese central state television CCTV showed video images taken on a security camera of what appeared to be the rescue of a two-and-a-half-year-old girl.

Delivery men stood waiting below as she dangled from the window above on Thursday in Ninghai, Zhejiang Province.

As she plummeted, they dashed to the correct spot to catch the girl, who has been named only as Qiqi.

CCTV quoted the parents as saying that they had left Qiqi home alone while she was sleeping, but that she had climbed on to the window sill after she awoke.

As the girl cried out, workers from a nearby delivery company were alerted and rushed in to the street to see her legs dangling from the window.

After shouting to reassure the girl, they managed to break her fall with their outstretched arms as she plunged to the ground.

Two men were injured in the rescue; one hurt his neck, and the other hurt his arm.

Qiqi herself escaped with just a graze to her face.
