Chinese Vendor Hero

 

He fell from the second story of a building

During heavy thunderstorms in south China this weekend, a one-year-old baby apparently went looking for his mother by a window. Two men on the street below noticed the child’s precarious position and anticipated his fall, Reuters reports.

“I didn’t think too much at the time,” said the man who managed to catch the baby, identified only as Mr. Li. “I was just afraid of failing to catch him.”

Another resident, identified as Mr. Hu, helped put down cardboard and a sofa to break the baby’s fall, just in case.

“It was nothing but human instinct to do so,” he said.

Blogger’s comment:

An attitude of humility is so often  present in the lives of heroes, a vendor catching a baby,  soldiers fighting for our   freedom or  saving their wounded buddies. Thank God for these angels in disguise!
