A viral video has turned a young man from Turkey into a hero after he was seen catching a two-year-old baby girl as she fell from a second-story window.
Fawzi Zabaat, a 17-year-old Algerian, was walking on the street when he saw the two-year-old Syrian girl playing near the open window of her apartment last week. He attempted to alert those around him and then noticed her fall. He eventually stepped in to catch her as she hurtles towards the pavement.
“I was just walking in the road when I saw the little girl at the window. She fell, and thanks to God, I caught her before she hit the ground,” he said.

The Syrian toddler Doha Muhammed was caught by Algerian immigrant Feuzi Zabaat, who noticed she was about to fall from the window of her home in Istanbul, Turkey.
Zabaat, who was working in a frame workshop on the same street, positioned himself underneath the second-floor apartment window and caught the girl before she hit the ground.
Muhammed survived the accident without any injuries.
According to local media, the toddler approached the open window of the apartment while her mother was cooking in the kitchen.
Muhammed’s family has hailed Zabaat as a hero and rewarded him 200 Turkish Lira ($35).
