A young girl’s quick-thinking saved her little brother’s life and the Internet can’t stop calling her a “hero.” The incident, which was captured on camera, shows the young girl acting quickly to save her brother’s life when a rope around his neck got caught in an elevator’s door.
The video opens with three children entering a lift – without any adult supervision. A few seconds into the clip, the boy is seen being dragged up in the air as the rope around his neck gets caught in the moving elevator door. Soon, his sister is seen pressing the lift’s alarm button and then grabbing the boy’s legs – probably to ease the pressure on his neck. Eventually, thankfully, the video ends with the girl releasing her brother from the noose.
Though initially shocked, the boy is now doing well, reports Mirror.
The video was shared by People’s Daily, China on Twitter on August 1. Till now, it has gathered more than 32,000 views – and still counting.
“Horrifying moment! Sister stayed calm and saved the boy who got hang by toy rope inside an elevator in Istanbul, Turkey. Please watch your children when using elevator,” they wrote.
