There is a Chinese saying that goes like, “If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.” While living in a selfish world, there are fewer times when we come across stories where people help each other without any incentive. However, there are times when a random act of kindness touches our very soul and restores our faith in humanity.
One such incident took place in the Jiangsu province of China which made us believe that not all heroes wear capes. In a surprising incident, two Chinese men saved the life of a 3-year-old girl who was clinging to the bars of the balcony of her home.
Apparently, the incident got caught on the camera and was shared by a popular social media page. In the video, two men climbed the three-floor building to reach to the three-year-old who was hanging on the balcony. Thankfully, one of them quickly got hold of the girl and saved her.
Take a look at the video here:

Talking to media, one of the witnesses said:
“It was about ten o’clock in the morning when I saw the little girl dangling outside the window, totally naked. I saw a man got off a vehicle and dashed to the building. He swiftly climbed up to save the child.”
Reportedly, the child was left alone in the home because she was sleeping. But, on waking up she somehow unlocked the window and crawled outside the balcony. Fortunately, she was saved before anything grave happened.
People like these Chinese men make us realize that all hope is not lost as still there are people who help each other without any selfish needs. Good job, guys!
