A 3-year-old child hangs on to a sixth-floor balcony in Chongqing China

The toddler, who had been left home sleeping while his grandmother went out to buy groceries, woke up and wandered out onto the sixth-floor balcony and climbed onto an outdoor sink before slipping over the glass railing, reports Daily Mail.

As the boy clung on for dear life, neighbours quickly gathered below, formed a circle and held out a blanket.

"I looked up and saw a child was dangling up there".

The toddler, who was captured on video dangling from a balcony, is shown dropping from the building as shouts are heard below.

With the makeshift safety net stretched out below him, the toddler is seen plunging towards the ground before being swept up in the blanket.

The state media organization said the group of rescuers included homeowners, staff members from the property management company, security guards and sanitation workers.

"I held out the blanket along with others all the while keeping my eyes on the child", Zhu Yanhui told CCTV. My first reaction was to find something to catch him.

A woman holds the little boy after residents save him with the blanket. "My only thought was to keep him safe", he said.

Fortunately, the boy landed safely on the blanket. "The whole thing happened in less than two minutes", said Feng Ming, a mother who spoke to the Chongqing Evening Paper. When the boy's parents came home in the evening, they took him to the hospital.

The child survived and suffered no injuries, CCTV reported.
