Chinese man uses mop to save girl dangling from window

This is the incredible moment a Chinese man used quick thinking and a trusty old mop to save the life of a young girl who was dangling from a fourth-storey window.

Mobile phone vision shows Wang Baocheng using a mop to support a young girl whose head is stuck between window bars outside her apartment in Weifang City, in the Shandong Province.

"I saw the girl hanging from over there. Then I heard her calling for help and quickly ran over,” Mr Baocheng told CCTV News.

“I saw that the girl's head was stuck and it was holding her up. When I got upstairs I grabbed onto the window and used a mop to support her."

Video shows Mr Baocheng risking his own safety to perilously lean out of the window to support the young girl with a mop.

As the girl was home along and the door to her apartment was locked, Mr Baocheng continued to hold her up until her parents returned home and pulled her inside.

A nearby resident who witnessed the incident praised Wang's actions.

"Wang held the girl up for more than 10 minutes... I think his brave and courageous actions are worthy of praise," the resident told CCTV.

While the little girl suffered a terrible fright, she didn’t suffer any injuries thanks to Mr Baocheng’s quick thinking.
