A “superhero” delivery driver in Vietnam was in the right place at the right time to save a child’s life. Nguyen Ngoc Manh was in his car waiting to make a delivery in Hanoi when he heard a child crying and a woman screaming. He looked out and saw the two-year-old girl climbing out onto a 12th-floor balcony of a nearby building.
Manh rushed out of his car and climbed onto a nearby building’s roof to get closer, in case she fell. He says he lost his footing just as she started to fall, but he flung himself forward and was able to catch her, landing so hard he left a dent in the roof.
“I tried to reach out my hand and took the maximum effort to catch the girl,” he explains. “Luckily, the baby fell into my lap.” She was taken to the hospital and local media reports she has a dislocated hip, but didn’t have any other injuries.
