Storyline


Two heroes rescued a naked toddler dangling outside a 4th-floor window in Changshu City of east China's Jiangsu Province on Friday.

Using their bare hands, the two delivery couriers swiftly scaled several stories of the apartment building, just like "spidermen", to reach an adjacent window and climbed onto the ledge where the little girl was clinging to the bars outside the window.

The two men said they noticed the toddler girl when driving through the community area and decided to do something to help.

"It was about ten o'clock in the morning when I saw the little girl dangling outside the window, totally naked. I saw a man got off a vehicle and dashed to the building. He swiftly climbed up to save the child," said a witness of the incident.

The child was safely rescued shortly before the father came back home.

The toddler girl had been left alone at home, sleeping in the bedroom. She managed to unlock the window and crawled outside after waking up.

The father said he could not imagine what would have happened without the help from the two heroes.

"I feel so grateful to the two heroes who saved my kid. I know that it was really dangerous even for the men themselves to climb up so high on the building," said the father who was later given a verbal warning for leaving the child unattended.
