Dramatic video shows an ‘angel’ come to the rescue of a baby falling from a window when a 17-year-old boy saved the toddler from crushing to death from a storey building.
A baby seen a video falling from a widow was miraculously saved by the timely intervention of a teenager when the boy grabbed the falling child in Istanbul, Turkey.
“I was walking down the road when I saw a two-year-old girl hanging from a window,” Feuzi Zabaat revealed in an interview.
“I walked close to her, and as she fell I held on to her,” he added.
The video, from a nearby security camera, shows the toddler falling and Zabaat catching her in mid-air. Onlookers then surround the boy as he cradled the baby in his arms.
"I was walking from the top of the street toward the bottom. I saw this man looking up, it caught my attention," eyewitness Izzet Bayir affirmed.
‘‘And I saw that this little girl was about to fall. And this lion of a person caught this child in mid-air and reunited her with her family."
The baby’s father, who was stunned by the turn of events couldn’t hold back his appreciation: "May God bless you," he told Yusuf Muhammed, after the rescue.
He then gave him a reward for saving his daughter’s life, reports confirmed.
