A man leaned out of his window to moan about noise - and caught his neighbour as she fell from the window above.Pretty amazing. Good reflexes.
Orlando Fonseca, 29, was furious to hear crashing, screaming and shouting from Kim Koeon upstairs. What he didn't know was that Kim, 30, had fallen through her broken third-floor window and was clinging to the sill by her fingertips. As Orlando leaned out to shout, she fell for what would have been a 40ft drop on to concrete, reports the Sun.
Orlando, from Wandsworth, said: "I saw this girl hanging by her fingertips. Suddenly she just let go and amazingly I was able to grab her as she went past. It all happened so quickly. It took no time to get her inside, but it hurt my arms a lot. She must have been in shock. She kept crying and saying she was so sorry, but then laughing."
Kim, who is from Korea, went to hospital with cuts and bruises. She said: "This man saved my life I want to see him and thank him."
