Little Boy Fell From The 10th Floor, But His Neighbor Downstairs Managed To Catch Him Just In Time

We often hear that heroes live among us, but they aren’t always near at the right moment. Artem Karev is one of them. His timely appearance became well known all over the world. This young man miraculously saved a boy who was falling down from the 10th floor.

On September 24, Artem was peacefully resting at home when he heard shouts from the street. He looked out of the window and saw a group of people holding a blanket outside. Judging from the direction in which the people were looking, he realized that something is happening a little higher. Later, he told reporters that he saw a child begging for help right above his head.

People who hoped to catch the kid and soften his fall with a blanket later recalled they didn’t have another option at that time. They were afraid they simply wouldn’t have reached the apartment quickly enough, especially since there was nobody else home to open the door. 

Artem turned out to be in the right place at the right time. The young man stretched his hands out of the open window and caught the falling child a few seconds after. A 7-year-old child became bored at home alone. He decided to “go for a walk” in this way. The mother left her son only for 15 minutes. The boy cut the mosquito net with a knife and went out the window. Fortunately, he managed to catch hold at the last moment.

People from the opposite building also filmed what was happening.

We would like to remind parents of the safety rules once again:

  1. Don’t leave children under 7 years old alone at home.
  2. Teach your kids to be at home without adults gradually, leaving them for a very short time (up to 15 minutes).
  3. Consider your child’s character: they may be too frivolous and playful.
  4. Explain to the child what will happen if they don’t follow the safety rules.
  5. Always come back on time – this will help instill discipline in your child.
  6. Each time, when you leave home, make sure that they can’t harm themselves; don’t keep things that might interest them on windowsills.
  7. Use special access limiters.

For his courage, Artem was rewarded financially. The young hero has already decided how he wants to spend the money: he will transfer the funds for the purchase and installation of window protective mechanisms for children in families in needs. 

Unfortunately, there won’t always be someone who can help at a certain moment. That is why share this warning post with your friends and relatives who have children: ensuring the kids’ safety is something we should always keep in mind.
