Four-Year-Old Girl Rescued After Getting Stuck in Second Floor Balcony
We're not sure why there's been a recent spate of small children perilously dangling from great heights, but it's a good thing that heroic people always seem to be on hand to save them. In China, a four-year-old girl became stuck in the rails of a second story balcony and hung there precariously until emergency services arrived.
"I drove by with my friends in the morning and happened to hear the girl crying. Looking up, I saw her neck stuck in the protective rails and so I called police," said Zheng Shuqi.
While a resident supported her feet, a police officer scaled the balcony and freed the girl after several tense moments. She was immediately taken to hospital, but suffered no injuries aside from an abrasion on her cheek.
