A five-year-old boy was left clinging on to a 19th-floor balcony for dear life after he fell from the flat above while left home alone.

The youngster desperately held on for 20 minutes until he was spotted by a man on the ground, and a daring rescue attempt took place.

The sleeping boy had been left alone by his grandmother at the Diwang Square residential block in Shenzhen, China, while she went downstairs for her morning dancing session.

But the boy woke up and went looking for his grandmother, walking onto the balcony and falling over the railing outside their home on the 20th floor

Amazingly, he managed to grab onto the security bars outside the balcony below, with the child eventually spotted by the residential complex sanitation worker Peng Changjing.
