Security camera footage has been taken of 17-year-old Feuzi Zabaat catching a toddler as she fell from a second-floor open window in Istanbul.

Two-year-old Dora Muhammed fell from an open window on Thursday and was caught before she reached the ground by the Algerian teenager.

She was unhurt in the incident.

Feuzi said:

“I was walking down the road when I saw a two-year-old girl hanging from a window. I walked closer to her, and as she fell I held on to her."

Izzet Bayir, an eyewitness at the scene, said:

“I was walking from the top of the street toward the bottom. I saw this man looking up, it caught my attention, 'what's happening?' And I saw that this little girl was about to fall."
“This lion of a person caught this child in mid-air and reunited her with her family."

Dora's father Yusuf Muhammed gave Feuzi a 200 Turkish Lira (around $35) reward for saving his daughter's life. While the amount may seem small by US standards, a moderate daily travel budget including meals transportation and accommodations in Turkey, according to lonely planet, is 150-350 Turkish Lira.

Disciplining children in a way that will make them reflect on their behavior without taking it too far is definitely a difficult line to walk. Some parents have apparently had to get rather creative to get the point across.

It's next to impossible to get through life without regrets. Whether it was a missed opportunity to ask someone out or missing a chance to say goodbye to a loved one before they walked on, missed opportunities are part of life.

We sometimes regret decisions and life choices too, but the missed opportunities always seem to hit the hardest when we look back on them.

Accusations of sexual harassment are serious things, and not tools for manipulating a game, but two Survivor contestants ignored that to make the game go their way.

Elizabeth Beisel and Missy Byrd voiced concerns over touching by another contestant, Dan Spilo, which now appear to have been either greatly exaggerated or completely made up to manipulate other players.

We all need a pick-me-up now and then. The news can be depressing and so many of us are used to hearing nothing but messages of gloom and doom from the moment we step outside.

Parents are everything, well good parents, parents who are destined to be parents. Some people really shouldn't be parents. That's for another time to discuss. When we are all born our parental units have such high hopes and plans.... and more often then not, the spawn will choose the adverse path. When you're children choose the adverse path, it has to be harrowing, but, a true parent finds a way, even with disappointment. But that doesn't mean you can't chat about it.

So flying can be a handful and a half. We can't travel with anything but our knickers anymore, well that is what it feels like. Sometimes we forget what we've packed, especially if we've packed in a hurry. It feels like the simplest of necessities is now a HUGE no-no. So once and awhile we're flagged with a thing or two that could raise a few eyebrows. (For no good reason!)
