A young mother saved the life of a 2-year-old girl who fell from the 10th floor of a building in Hangzhou.
While her grandmother went to get some quilts she was drying on the roof, the girl crawled on to the windowsill of the bedroom where her grandmother had left her sleeping. A downstairs neighbor saw the girl and tried to reach her using a ladder, but the attempt failed and the girl finally fell.
Wu Juping, 31, who lived in the same neighborhood, ran to the building when she heard someone cry out in alarm and managed to catch the girl before she hit the ground.
This incredible story answers one of my questions in life – is it possible to save someone falling off a building and survive?.
It seems it is possible after all, that is, if it’s only 10 floors and you’re catching a little girl.
Unfortunately, both parties still suffered major injuries from the impact. The woman, suffered a comminuted fracture in her left arm and will have to undergo surgery. Her recovery is expected to take six months. The girl, on the other hand, seems very lucky to be alive. Her brain, lungs, gastrointestinal tract were all injured because of the height she fell from. She also has difficulties in urination.
