Some dramatic surveillance video has surfaced from China. 

It was shot on May 18th.

Men on the ground are looking up and see a one-year-old baby hanging from a window.

The child falls, but was caught before hitting the ground.

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.
