Video captures moment Algerian immigrant saves baby falling from apartment in Turkey

A dramatic CCTV footage has captured the moment a two-year-old girl was caught as she fell from the window of her family's second-floor apartment in Turkey.

The incident took place last Thursday in Istanbul's Fatih district, which is home to a sizeable expat Arab community. 

Doha Muhammed, the daughter of Syrian couple Leyla Abdullah and Yusuf Muhammed, approached the open window of their second story flat while her mother Leyla was cooking in the kitchen. 

17-year-old Feuzi Zabaat an Algerian immigrant who works at a frame workshop on the same street, saw that the toddler was about to fall and stood underneath the window.

Zabaat managed to hold the toddler just before she was about to hit the ground, saving her from an imminent serious injury that could have left her permanently disabled, or dead.

Doha survived the accident without any injuries.

Although baby Doha escaped the fall unharmed, she was quite frightened and shaken. Her savior Zabaat and other locals were seen trying to calm her before handing her to Leyla.
Father Yusuf also arrived at the scene after hearing the news, giving Zabaat a modest reward of 200 Turkish liras, and making a religious sacrifice the next day to celebrate the rescue of his daughter.

Her rescuer said he did what he had to do to save the girl: "I did what was necessary for the love of Allah."
