As luck would have it, the girl’s fall was broken and the delivery personnel caught her in his arms. The man, identified as Nguyen Ngoc Manh, 31, was sitting in his truck.

Here is the frightening video
A woman began screaming and he stuck his head out of the window to see what was going on. He then saw the toddler was nearly 50 meters above the ground. Without any hesitation, he got out of his truck and tried to look for ways to rescue her.
“I plunged out of the car immediately and found ways to climb into the nearby building. I mounted on a 2-meter-high tile roof to seek a proper position to get the girl,” he revealed to the Vietnam Times.
While speaking to the news outlet, he shared that he extended his arms out to take in maximum impact.
By God’s grace, the girl fell in his lap. “I hurriedly embraced her then saw blood leaking from her mouth, I was very frightened, ”Manh recollected.
The child was taken to the National Children’s Hospital where doctors disclosed she had dislocated her hip. Luckily, she suffered no other injuries. Manh too later realized that he had sprained his arms.
“I didn’t think about it much back then, but now I’m happy for doing something meaningful. After saving the girl, I left without leaving a phone number, though the girl’s family managed to contact me anyway to inform me of the girl’s health status,” he told another news outlet.
