A mother was praised for her incredible quick reflexes and averted catastrophe as she saves son’s life from falling a fourth-floor balcony.

CCTV footage showed a mother and toddler waiting outside a door at the Monserrate construction company’s office in the Laureles Colonial building in Medellín, Colombia. However, while the mother glances up from her phone the young lad curiously heads towards the railing, putting his hands out thinking it was a glass panel, he collapses to his knees and falls head first through the gap.

His mom’s unbelievable quick reaction manages to leaps over in time and grabs the boy’s leg preventing him from falling while witnesses scramble to help the mother to pull her son to safety.
