The child, whose parents were at work at the time of the incident, was taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
The rescue video has since gone viral on Weibo, with many calling out the toddler’s parents to be more responsible.
“Regardless of the [building’s] management, the parents are guilty.”
“Are the adults dead? Aren’t there news of children falling down every day?”
“There’s still plenty of good people in this world, but about this child’s parents?”
“His parents must have seen these videos. I wonder what they feel playing them on a loop.”
“It’s a virtue to be nice. At the same time, I hope this child’s parents will make up proofing their home for hazards. I hope this sort of incident will not be repeated. Prevent problems before they happen.”
