This is the heart-stopping moment a man caught a baby as he fell from a second-floor window onto a busy street in Southern China.

The street vendor spots the frightened tot teetering on a window ledge, after he apparently climbed out during a heavy thunderstorm looking for his mother.

Mr Li - as he has being named locally - can be seen desperately rushing to the boy with his arms outstretched, determined to break his fall.

He is understood to live in the building opposite in Xiaolan town, Zhongshan city of Guangdong province.

The surveillance footage shows other residents piling up pieces of cardboard and a sofa on the ground in the hope of breaking the infant's fall.

The boy eventually topples off the ledge and is safely caught by Li, then bundled up and hurried away by his distraught mother.

Mr Li said afterwards: "I didn't think too much at the time. 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. It was nothing but human instinct to do so." (Mirror.co.uk)

    Don't be silly. Nobel Peace Prizes are reserved for people like Obama, who has two wars and Guantanamo going or Kissinger who endorsed the Vietnam war. Was Mahatma Gandhi ever even in the short list?

    Surely he must be nominated for the Nobel Prize for humanity and receive highest possible honor in the world.
