This is the gut-wrenching moment a man in China catches a baby who fell from a two-storey building.

CCTV footage captured the heart-stopping moment the 1-year-old fell from a high window into the arms of a man. 

The man, a street seller in Zhongshan city, Guangdong province named Mr Li, said he made his way downstairs when he saw the child on the window ledge. 

The young child had apparently been looking for his mother. 

"I didn’t think too much at the time", he said.
 
"I was just afraid of failing to catch him. Some people put down cardboard to avoid serious injuries to the baby if I fail to catch him."
 
The child's mother whisked the youngster away immediately after the incident.
