A delivery driver in Vietnam is named a hero after he has miraculously caught a toddler who dropped from a balcony on the 12th floor.

Nguyen Ngoc Manh, 31, was sitting in his truck waiting to deliver a package to his residence in Hanoi on Sunday, Feb 28, when he heard a boy crying and a woman screaming overhead.

Initially, he said he shrugged off the commotion like a child with a tantrum.

But when Manh saw people panicked and yelling in the street, he rolled down his window and looked up. To his shock, he saw a little girl hanging 164 feet in the air, VN Express International posted.

The heart-stopping moment was captured on video and shared on social media.

 

Manh, a father himself, immediately exited his truck. Trying to gauge where the girl may land, he climbed a 6-foot wall between where he was stopped and the apartment complex.

“I scaled the wall and saw that she could fall onto the metallic roof of the house used to store electric generators for the complex, so I tried to climb on top of it,” Manh told VN Express.

“I made it, but couldn’t stand firmly, as the roof was crooked.”

 

As the girl lost her grip on the balcony railing and started falling, Manh slipped. But he flung himself forward and caught the toddler.

 

She wasn’t crying, he said, but blood was dripping from her mouth.

 

“She looked so much like my child at home. I was so confused, only able to tell her, ‘Please, please, I’m here now,'” Manh told VN Express International.

 

The little girl was taken to a hospital, where doctors treated her for a dislocated hip, but said she had no other injuries.

 

Manh sprained his arm catching her.

 

Many on social media hailed Manh as a hero, but he told VN Express he doesn’t care for the label. He said he just wants to “do good.”
