It could have ended tragically. Last Friday in Rumia (near Gdańsk), two passers-by noticed a small girl hanging from a second floor balcony. Luckily, the women reacted immediately.
The 5-year-old girl was holding on to the banister. One of the women ran into the building to find the apartment the child was at. The other fortunately stayed outside.
In the meantime, they called an ambulance and fire department. But suddenly the girl fell. She didn’t get hurt, because she fell right into the arms of the woman standing under the balcony.
The little girl was at home alone. Her mother was at work and her father left only for a moment to walk his older daughter to school. The parents had no criminal record and the father was sober at the moment of the accident.
The brave woman was in the right place at the right time. By reacting so quickly she saved the girl’s life.
