Each day, we read a lot of news coverage of incidents. Some are inevitable and it will happen no matter what is done. Then there are some incidents that could be prevented. Talking of prevention, Mr. Li, a street vendor from Zhongshan, South China saw an infant dangling from a high rise building in a busy street.
He was there waiting with his open arms to catch when the child falls. Several others also participated by putting padding on the floor such as cardboards to cushion the impact but this is a child who could not possibly survive the impact of the fall. He said, “I didn’t think too much at the time, I was just afraid of failing to catch him.

This one year old child reportedly climbed out of the window of a second floor window during a storm. Local news reported that the child had stepped onto the latch looking for the mother. Mr. Li, a street vendor who caught the baby says, “it was nothing but just human instinct”. Congrats on the good catch!
