A 2-year-old boy has survived a fifth floor fall from a residential building after being caught by a retired soldier on the second floor.

The incident happened in Weifang, Shandong Province, on May 14, Knews reported.

In the footage, the boy can be seen hanging from an air conditioning unit outside a window on the fifth floor, struggling and kicking his feet.

When the retired soldier, Liu Yangming, realized what was going on, he immediately set out to do what he could to rescue the boy.

He knocked on apartment doors in the building one by one, desperately trying to find someone at home. A household on the second floor opened their door for him, enabling Liu and his father to climb out through a window.

Luckily, when the boy fell from above, Liu caught him in time and pulled him to safety with the help of his father.

The boy climbed out of the window himself as his guardians were not at home.
