Young girls clings to life in China - 24 floors up

A young girl - her head wedged between metal bars - dangles from the 24th floor of a Chinese apartment building. Crowds below hold their breath as the drama plays out in the eastern province of Hubei. Rescuers are called in to try and save the five-year-old, stuck more than 70 metres above the ground. After cutting through another set of metal bars, one man - secured with little more than rope - ventures out to the child. Holding her tight, he wraps the girl in a blanket and lifts her in the waiting arms of other rescuers. The girl reportedly said she was locked inside the apartment - alone - by her mother.
