Terrifying footage has emerged from China of a four-year-old girl dangling from a the third floor balcony of an apartment block 40 feet (12 meters) up in the air. In the clip, which was filmed in Fujian Province on July 14, the girl hangs from the balcony with her head stuck between the bars of the security rail. A neighbor comes to the girl's rescue by edging around the balcony on the floor below. He manages to push her back through the bars to the safety of her home. According to local reports, the girl had been left home alone while her grandmother went shopping.

This is a very chilling reminder that although we consider children to be well-behaved, we should never leave them unattended because stuff like these are sometimes likely to happen. We can't know for sure why the girl was dangling from the balcony, but a lot of things can happen in a four-year-old's mind. Luckily this story ended well thanks to the courageous neighbor, but we shouldn't leave things to chance, especially when it comes to children.

It is our duty to keep them safe and away from any harm, and educate them on the various dangers that they might encounter if they are reckless.
