XIAOLAN, China (NBC/APTN) – There’s some dramatic surveillance video out of China.

This video was shot Sunday in southern China.

You may wonder what the men look so concerned about.

On the second floor above them is a 1-year-old baby hanging from a window.

Then, watch as the man makes the catch of a lifetime.

China Central Television reported the baby might have been looking for its mother and climbed onto the window during a thunderstorm.

Luckily for the child, there were some Good Samaritans below.

The man who caught the baby said he was just afraid he wouldn’t make the catch, but some people had put down cardboard in case he missed.

Fortunately, it didn’t come to that.
