(Newser) – Talk about a good catch: A one-year-old boy climbed onto a two-story window in China Sunday—in a possible attempt to look for his mom—and fell out of it, the AP reports, per Fox News. Noticing the boy on the window, a quick-thinking Good Samaritan, identified only as Mr. Li, ran across the street to help and ended up catching the baby—and the whole affair was caught on a surveillance camera. "I didn't think too much at the time. I was just afraid of failing to catch him," says Mr. Li, who added other villagers had time to pull over a couch to cushion the baby's fall in case no one caught him. (In California last March, a man who just happened to be carrying a box spring used it—and his quick wits—to save another falling baby.)
