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.
“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.
