Talk about being at the right place at the right time. 

One man in China is being hailed a hero after catching a one-year-old baby who had been seen climbing out of a second-story window, according to CCTV video. 

In the video above, you see a man, only identified as Mr. Li, anxiously stretching out his arms and making a clean catch despite the pouring rain, while others watched with horror.

The baby was said to have been looking for his mother during the storm. 

Others had placed pieces of cardboard and even a sofa under the window in an effort to break the baby's fall.
