A mother was caught on CCTV saving her son’s life thanks to her unbelievably quick reaction. In the split second before her little boy fell from a fourth-floor balcony, she managed to grab his leg and pull him to safety, saving his life in the process.
The mother and son are seen waiting outside a door at the Monserrate construction company’s office in the Laureles Colonial building in Medellín, Colombia, as reported by local publication El Espactador.
In the video, the toddler curiously heads towards the railing, putting his hands out on what he thinks is a glass panel between the railings. He collapses to his knees and falls head first through the gap.
His mother glances up from her phone, having only taken her eyes off him for a few seconds, before jumping into action – she leaps over and grabs his leg, pulling him back through to safety.
It’s not confirmed at this stage whether the child was injured in the incident, but the heart-stopping clip leaves you fearing for what could have happened had his mum not spotted him just in time.
