Beijing officer Qiao Jinhai foiled a potential tragedy last month when he saved a young woman and her baby from the edge of the city’s Guanghua bridge. CCTV released footage of the harrowing scene captured by surveillance cameras.
Officer Jinhai rushed to the scene after commuters spotted the woman holding a young child climbing over the rails of the bridge. The officer managed to grab the desperate woman right as she appeared poised to jump into the water. She frantically clamped on to the edge of the bridge, while passersby rushed in and snatched the child from her arms.
