TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Lin Feng-tien (林峰田), a technician at a home appliance store in Tainan, made the most important catch of his life on Wednesday afternoon (Nov. 18) when he caught a little girl falling from the third floor of an apartment, saving her life.

Lin later reflected on the critical moment and said, “I’m thinking to myself, ‘I’ve got to catch her!’”

Tainan Fire Bureau received reports at 3:56 p.m. on Wednesday that a little girl had fallen from the third floor of an apartment building on Zhonghua South Road in the city’s South District but was caught by a store worker on the first floor, according to CNA. Medical personnel were dispatched to the scene right away, where they found the girl scared but conscious and with no apparent traumas; even so, she was sent to a hospital for examination.

Witnesses said the three-year-old was crying on a window sill on the third floor with her feet hanging in the air, saying she was looking for her father.    [FULL  STORY]
