He was sitting in his vehicle to deliver a package in Hanoi when he saw the toddler clinging from the 12th-floor balcony with one hand. The driver ran out of his car and quickly climbed onto the bottom level of the building to position himself directly underneath the toddler. The video shows the girl falling from the balcony but Nguyen had already positioned himself perfectly to catch her.
In the video clip doesn’t show the moment of landing but local media reports aid the girl fell 164-feet and straight into the driver’s lap. “‘I was sitting in the car and waiting to deliver some belongings for a client in the opposite building when I heard a child crying – I just thought that the baby had been scolded by their parents,”. “I jumped out of the car immediately, trying to find ways to climb the nearby building. I mounted on a two-metre-high tile roof to seek a proper position to get the girl,” he added.
The little girl suffered a dislocated hip and was rushed to a nearby Children’s Hospital for treatment.
