With all that they do for their children, mothers are superheroes in more ways than one. This mum in Colombia proved it by saving her baby from falling off a balcony ledge with her lightning quick reflexes. And she did it all without dropping her phone.
The incident reportedly took place on the fourth floor of Laureles Colonial building in Medellín, according to El Espectador. In the security camera footage of the June 19 episode that has since gone viral, the mother appears to be talking on the phone as the baby walks around a staircase landing. The baby then raises both hands up and tries to lean onto the bannister.
In a heartstopping moment, the baby falls straight through the railings, over the ledge. The quick-thinking mother darts forward and manages to grab onto one of her baby’s legs – while still holding her phone securely in the other hand. She then places her phone down on the floor before grabbing the baby with both hands and pulling the child to safety.
