The video, recorded in a market in China's Chongqing on May 15, was most likely recorded on surveillance camera. It shows the salesman talking on the phone when he suddenly takes notice of something in front of his shop. He is then seen rushing out of the shop. Another camera angle shows him standing under a building as if waiting for something to happen. As more people gather on the street, it becomes clear the man is trying to save someone. Moments later, a child is seen dropping from the building right into his arms. The child seems unharmed in the accident.
Several people have praised the salesman for his brave and selfless act.
