The CCTV footage, posted on Twitter by CGTN, begins with a group of people looking up and rushing towards a building with their arms outstretched. Within seconds, it's clear that someone is in trouble and perhaps falling to the ground. A quick-thinking man immediately tugs at a large sheet that is hanging to dry closeby. A few other men follow his lead and help him hold it up.
The child lands on a safety net hanging just above the people. Subsequently, he falls on the bedsheet and appears safe thanks to the men holding it.
CGTN reports that the child and one of the men were left with minor injuries as a result of the fall.
