Woman saves Chinese toddler from apartment fall.

A TWO-YEAR-OLD Chinese girl left unattended fell 10 floors from her family's apartment window and survived after being caught by a woman who was passing by at the time.

The toddler was left in critical condition with internal bleeding and other unspecified injuries, while the woman who saved her suffered a broken arm, China Central Television and the Xinhua News Agency said.

The girl, named Zhang Fangyu but known by the nickname Niu Niu, was in the care of her grandmother yesterday afternoon when the older woman left the 10th-floor apartment outside the eastern city of Hangzhou to run an errand, CCTV said.

Neighbours saw Niu Niu dangling from the apartment window for several minutes, Xinhua said, and when the girl fell, Wu Juping "kicked off her high-heeled shoes" and ran to catch the child.

According to reports, Wu was knocked unconscious and suffered a broken arm.
