17-year-old Feuzi Zabaat was at the right place at the right time when he was walking down the street in the Fatih district in Istanbul where he works. It was there that he noticed a young girl playing very close to an open window.
The little girl, Doha, had strayed over to towards the window while her mother was cooking in their kitchen of their two-story apartment.
In the CCTV footage, which has now gone viral, Feuzi is seen wearing a yellow shirt while staring up towards the window, as though he was anticipating something tragic.
The security footage captures the precise moment when the heroic teen springs into action, placing himself directly below the window, right in the perfect spot.
From there everything happened in a flash.
Feuzi had his arms out in anticipation, only a few seconds before Doha fell out of the window, headed for the concrete below.
“She fell, and thanks to God, I caught her before she hit the ground,” Feuzi said.
Thanks to the teen’s quick thinking, the little girl Doha was spared a possible catastrophe.
