A TODDLER has been dramatically saved after plummeting from a two-storey-high apartment window – straight into the arms of a hero teen.
Video footage shows the heart-stopping moment Feuzi Zabaat, 17, lurches forward in the street and manages to catch the falling tot, with just centimetres to spare.
The Demirören news agency in Turkey said that the two-year-old girl, Doha Muhammad, survived the fall in Fatih, Istanbul, “without even bleeding”.
She had apparently wandered to the window while her mum was busy cooking.
In the agency’s footage of the incident, obtained from nearby security cameras, Feuzi, who works in a frame manufacturing workshop, can be seen in shorts and a yellow t-shirt standing in the road, while other kids chat on the footpath nearby.
He suddenly looks up, and notices the toddler balancing precariously on the window above him.
Striding towards the path, the teen leaps forward with his arms stretched out and – amazingly – manages to catch her.
While he clutches the shocked child, another man dashes over the road to help him, collecting the girl’s clothes which had fallen onto the street through the force of the fall.
As a small crowd gathers around them, the boy then gently rocks Doha to calm her down as she starts crying.
