Her mother told Vietnamplus.vn that her family deeply thanked the hospital’s medical workers for their heartful care and treatment.

Her survival and recovery was huge happiness to her family, she said.

At about 5.30 pm on February 28, the three-year-old girl climbed over a balcony railing of a 12th storey apartment in Hà Nội’s Nguyễn Huy Tưởng Street.

Hearing desperate screams from neighbours living at the opposite building, Nguyễn Ngọc Mạnh, a truck driver from Hà Nội’s Đông Anh District, rushed to save her.

Mạnh, 31, climbed onto the corrugated roof of a small structure on the ground floor moments before the three-year-old girl lost her grip.

As she plummeted to the corrugated roof, Mạnh managed to grab her and pluck the baby to safety.

People have been moved and applauded Mạnh’s brave action, hailing him a hero.  — VNS
