Teenager Catches Two-Year-Old Toddler Falling From Second Floor Window

Teenager Catches Two-Year-Old Toddler Falling From Second Floor Window

A teenager in Istanbul, Turkey, has made the catch of his life, saving a two-year-old girl after she plummeted from a second floor window - as you can see in the video below:

Feuzi Zabaat, from Algeria, was walking down the street last week when he noticed Syrian toddler Doha Muhammed playing near an open window.

Anticipating the worst, 17-year-old Feuzi positioned himself on the road below and jumped into action as Doha fell from the window, catching her in his arms.

Feuzi - who works in a nearby frame workshop - was modest in the wake of his heroic deed, claiming that it was God, not he, who deserved the credit.

He said: "I was just walking in the road when I saw the little girl at the window. She fell, and thanks to God, I caught her before she hit the ground."

With the sort of instincts, reactions and coordination demonstrated by Feuzi, don't be surprised to see a few Premier League clubs short on a keeper making moves for the promising teen.

I accept, by the way, that might seem like a bit of an unnecessary joke, given that the subject matter is a toddler narrowly avoiding a potentially fatal accident. However, both toddler and catcher happily came out of the incident completely unscathed, so therefore I think it is absolutely fine. Hope you agree.

Until Feuzi lands himself a contract with a Premier League club though, he can reward himself for his heroism with the 200 Turkish Lira (£27) given to him by Doha's dad, Joseph.

But if Southampton are beaten to the teenager's signature, then perhaps they could make a swoop for Albert Passavanti, who demonstrated exceptional bravery and agility in saving his one-year-old son after he fell in a pool.

Toddler Rocco had wandered through a half-open pool gate while trying to get one of his toys, but he slipped and fell into the water and quickly went under.

Fortunately, his quick-thinking dad spotted what had happened and dived straight over the four-foot-high gate and into the pool to rescue his son.

Speaking to WPTV, he said: "The second you see it, you get Superman strength and just have to go for it. It didn't even cross my mind to go around, it was point A to point B."

Hats off to these heroic chaps for their courage and selflessness.
