A group of couriers in east China joined hands to save a boy who fell from the sixth floor of a residential building on May 22.

The breathtaking moment happened at a community in Jianggan District of Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, around noon, Knews reported.

A 4-year-old boy hung at the edge of the fourth floor after falling from a window on the sixth floor.

Couriers from a delivery station of Yunda Express located downstairs rushed to save him as soon as they discovered the situation.

They assembled below and tried to catch him with bed sheets, but before they could totally prepare the boy slipped, forcing them to catch him with their arms as well.

His fall was slightly broken by an awning put up to block the sun, before he was caught by the couriers below.

One of the rescuers, Wang Rulin, dislocated his right arm in the process of catching the boy, who was rushed to hospital where a doctor said he broke his right leg.

The family of the boy said they would thank the couriers in person after their child was in a stable condition.
