Nguyen Ngoc Manh Wiki – Nguyen Ngoc Manh Biography
Nguyen Ngoc Manh is a “superhero” deliveryman in Hanoi, Vietnam who has saved a two-year-old girl who fell off a 12th-floor balcony. He was sitting in his car waiting to make a delivery at 5 pm Sunday when he heard a crying child, he told the Anninhthudo news organization. A woman started screaming and he stuck his head out the window to see what was going on.
He told local media in the capital of Vietnam that he first thought he was a kid having a tantrum, but quickly realized it was something else. The boy was almost 50 meters from the ground. “I saw a girl coming out of the balcony,” he said. He jumped out of his car and climbed into a nearby building to get closer in case the boy fell.
“I put up a six-foot-high tile roof to find a suitable position to catch the girl,” he said, still shaking from rescue, according to the Vietnam Times.
Standing on a metal roof used to store generators, he lost his balance when the boy began to fall, he told VN Express International. But he lunged forward to catch her, landing so hard that he left a dent in the ceiling.
“I tried to reach out and did my best to catch the girl,” he said, hoping that at least he could keep her from falling straight to the ground.

“Fortunately, the baby fell into my lap,” Nguyen said. “I hugged her hastily and then I saw her blood coming out of her mouth, she was very scared.”
The girl was taken to the National Children’s Hospital, where doctors told local media that she had dislocated her hip but that she had suffered no other injuries. Le Ngoc Duy, a doctor at the hospital, said that she was in a cast and that she was being monitored.
