An incredible video of a child falling from a sixth floor window and miraculously surviving the fall, thanks to the quick thinking of locals, has been going viral on social media.

According to a report in BBC, the video was shot in Chongqing, China where a toddler was captured hanging from the sill of a window of a sixth-flood window. However, as the child falls, viewers notice that a crowd of locals and onlookers had gathered below the toddler and had stretched a blanket out as a trampoline to break the toddler's fall.

Just a couple of minutes into the video, the toddler can be seen letting go of his grip and falling straight below. However, his fall was indeed broken after he was caught in the blanket.

Zhu Yanhui, a staff member working in the housing society, told BBC News that her first reaction on seeing the imperiled child was to rush to it and try and catch it with whatever she had. "My first reaction was to find something to catch him," she said.

The incident was caught on CCTV footage. According to reports, the child is now safe.

However, netizens were left fuming with the video with many questiong how a toddler was alone in an apartment. Many questioned the efficacy of the parents in protecting the child.

However, others lauded the quick thinking of the onlookers in finding the blanket in time.

Now that's called 'jugaad' version China.
