Woman catches 10-year-old boy who falls from 3rd-floor window

Saturday 28th November, 09:07 AM JST

TOKYO —

A quick-thinking passerby caught a 10-year-old boy who fell from the 3rd-floor window of his elementary school on Friday afternoon, police said.

According to police, the boy, a 4th grader at the school in Musashino City, had climbed out of the window and was playing along a concrete ledge about nine meters above the ground when a woman passing by warned him that it was dangerous. The boy slipped and was hanging by his hands for a few seconds before he fell. The woman was able to catch the thin, 140-cm-tall boy in both arms, saving him from serious injury. The boy hurt his knee, but the pair was otherwise uninjured, police said.

The school vice principal praised the woman, saying, “If she wasn’t there, the boy would have been injured really badly. We’re so grateful for her quick action.”

maybe the lady did startle him, leading to the boy slipping from the edge, but I pretty much believe she did not save him out of guilt. anyone would try their best to save some child falling from a building with or without feeling any guilt, you know and there probably wasn't enough time to think about anything at all at that moment.
