This is the incredible moment when a man escaped near certain death when he fell backwards from a balcony, but is saved when a passerby catches his foot.
CCTV footage shows a group of men queuing to collect their pensions on the second-floor balcony of a bank in Kerala, southern India.
In the video, one of the men can be seen slowly rocking back and forth before leaning back and falling down the concrete balcony ledge.
A quick-thinking spectator springs into action, grabbing his foot as he approaches.
Others can be seen running to the aid of the unconscious man, eventually returning him to safety.
The man, known locally as Binu, was later taken to the nearest hospital. It is reported that he was not injured and is now safe as his fainting spell was caused by an unexplained medical episode.
Here at GNN, we wish you the best in health.
