But the clip leaves you fearing for what could have happened to him if his mom hadn’t noticed.

You can see, after she makes the jump, other workers in the building rushing to her aid including the delivery man who runs down the stairs to offer assistance from the other end. Even so, if she had let go, the child would have toppled down four floors until he hit the ground.

A parent’s worst nightmare.

However, some have criticized the mother, as the footage shows that she was on her phone.

Maybe if she had been paying better attention, she would have realized that there was no glass between the railings.

Others are just glad that the child was saved, which I think is the most important thing in all of this. Sometimes, there’s just no way of telling whether or not an accident is going to happen.

It has not yet been revealed if she plans on filing a lawsuit against the company for their unsafe environment.

According to reports, these kind of railings are not fit for purpose and this CCTV footage is proof of this. Many people are prompting her to sue the company for their carelessness in regards to their safety precautions.

All in all, we’re just thankful that both the mother and child are safe.
