Chinese Man Makes an Amazing Catch … of a Baby

During heavy thunderstorms in south China, a one-year-old baby apparently went looking for his mother by a window. According to reports coming out of China's media, two local men on the street below noticed the child's unsafe position and anticipated his fall. A man so far identified as Mr. Li, an "ordinary" street vendor, only had his bare hands and one chance, but the guy was in the right place at the right time with a willing heart and he made the remarkable catch. Mr. Li said, "I didn't think too much at the time. I was just afraid of failing to catch him."

Possible Preaching Angle:

There's sure something to be said for ordinary people who show up, stay awake, and make themselves available. You never know what God might ask you to do and how God might use you.
