A man in Zhongshan, Guangdong Province is being hailed as a hero online after catching a baby falling from a two-storey apartment.
The man, surnamed Li, and his superb reflexes were caught on surveillance camera, and the footage has gone viral on the Chinese web.
According to local media, a one year old baby was left alone at a second floor apartment on the city's Chaonan Road when he climbed up to the window to call for his mother. Li was passing and saw that the baby was about to fall and ran out into the middle of traffic to catch the child.
On the video, Li can be seen standing perfectly still, arms outstretched, his gaze fixed on the baby as it falls, before performing a superb catch worthy of the best rugby player.
