This is the breathtaking moment a man in China decided to scale the outside of a tall building to save a two-year-old who was dangling out of a third storey window.
Liang Lee, who has since been dubbed a real-life Spider-Man, claimed that he didn’t stop for a minute when he saw the child hanging out of the window. Instead he just ran at the building and began to climb.
According to the Mirror, the two-year-old had fallen out of a window after his parents left home – but miraculously managed to get his neck caught between security bars, thus stopping him from dropping to the ground below.
The child, who was understandably in a lot of shock, would’ve without doubt fallen from the security bars if he had moved his head either to the left or right – so Liang took no chances and began climbing.
As the video shows, Liang climbs the building – making it look easy – all the way to third floor where he grabs the young boy seconds before the clip ends.
Eventually a locksmith broke into the boy’s house and was able to drag the child and Liang back safely into the room.
Speaking afterwards Liang said:
I got here and found the boy barely moving.
His legs were shaking. I decided to climb up as I thought he was in danger. If the boy turned his head, he would fall from the gap of the bars.
Not all heroes wear capes.
