Video: Dramatic moment toddler caught after falling from five-storey building

Dramatic footage has emerged of the moment Chinese delivery men caught a toddler as she fell from a fifth-storey window in Zhejiang Province.

China's CCTV state TV service said two-and-a-half-year-old Qiqi had climbed on to a windowsill while left home alone in Ninghai.

Workers from a nearby delivery company saw the child dangling from the window and gathered underneath, breaking her fall as she plunged to the ground.

One man injured his neck during the catch, while another hurt his arm.

Qiqi escaped with a graze on her face.
