Lifesaving Moment a Man Topples Backwards Off a Balcony But a Bystander Catches His Foot

CCTV footage shows a group of men lining up to collect their labor pensions on the second-floor balcony of a bank in Kerala, South India.

In the video, one of the men can be seen slowly swaying back and forth before leaning backwards and tumbling off the concrete balcony ledge.

A quick-thinking bystander springs into action—grabbing his foot as he goes over.

Others can be seen rushing over to the aid of the unconscious man, eventually pulling him back to safety.

The man, known locally as Binu, was later taken to the nearest hospital. It’s reported that he did not sustain any injuries and is now safe—with his black-out having been caused by an unexplained medical episode.
