Catch of the day: Man saves falling boy (VIDEO)
A man's stunning, lightning-quick reactions saved a little boy from certain injury or death after the child fell from what appeared to be a flight of stairs. The accident, which had a happy ending worthy of a Hollywood blockbuster, was captured by a CCTV camera.

The video from November has only recently surfaced.

The unnamed man was taking a leisurely walk past a set of stairs, eating chips and looking up at something when he heard a crash. The hero immediately ran back to where the sound had come from, leaping like a leopard to grab the falling kid. He managed to break the boy’s fall before he hit the ground.
