Nimble father catches son falling from bench at Chinese food court

A nimble father caught his son mid-air as he fell from a bench at a food court in southern China.

CCTV footage recorded in Hechi City, Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region on November 12 shows the child sitting at the table as the man tidied up their bowls.

However, the youngster lost his balance and almost fell headfirst to the floor. Luckily, the father caught his son on time and was able to cushion him from the impact.

The boy was uninjured thanks to his dad’s quick reaction.
