An adventurous toddler in was apparently home alone in Liaocheng, China, when he tried to climb out of the window, but fortunately got stuck in the window, thwarting a potential fatal fall.
Still, the 2-year-old was hanging by his neck, his head caught between window bars. A local resident spotted him dangling from the bars and called out for help.
A man known only as Lei, the heroic real-life “Spider-Man,” rushed to the rescue as a crowd gathered to watch in horror. Lei scaled the high-rise with his bare hands to save the child dangling from the window.
He held onto the boy till a locksmith came and broke into the apartment and helped the two in.
"I got here and found the boy barely moving. His legs were shaking. I decided to climb up as I thought he was in danger," Lei told the reporters.
“The security window left a trace on the boy's neck. If the boy turned his head, he would fall from the gap of the bars,” he added.
No doubt he has become a local superhero and the people are calling him China's very own Spider-Man.
