ISTANBUL – Harrowing security camera video shows a teenager catching a toddler after she fell from an Istanbul building.

Two-year-old Dora Muhammed, a Syrian national, fell from a second-floor open window last Thursday, according to Turkey’s private Demiroren News Agency.

She was caught by an Algerian 17-year-old, Feuzi Zabaat, who worked nearby and noticed she was about to fall.

Dora’s father, Yusuf Muhammed, gave Zabaat a 200 Turkish Lira ($35 US Dollars) reward for saving his daughter’s life.
