PM praises lorry driver who saved girl who fell from tower block in Hanoi

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has sent a letter to commend Nguyen Ngoc Manh, a lorry driver who came to the rescue of a 2-year-old girl who fell from the 12th floor of a tower block in Hanoi.

Around 5:30pm on February 28, an unattended girl climbed over the balcony of her flat and hung on the outside of the building.

Witnessing the scene, residents in the opposite tower screamed for help and, just a few seconds later, the girl’s hand slipped and she fell.

Nguyen Ngoc Manh has been widely praised for his good deed.

At that moment, Manh, who was waiting for his customer on the ground, noticed the emergency and quickly climbed to the roof of the lobby and caught the falling girl.

The girl fortunately only suffered minor injuries and was immediately admitted to hospital while Manh’s action has been receiving plenty of praise on social media.

In his letter, Prime Minister spoke highly of Manh’s swift and brave rescue effort and asked the relevant agencies to honour the 31-year-old lorry driver so that his example of kindness and responsibility can be spread throughout society.

Earlier, Manh received a letter of praise from Hanoi Party Secretary Vuong Dinh Hue and a reward from Hanoi Chairman Chu Ngoc Anh for his good deed.

Nguyen Ngoc Manh could not believe he saved a little girl in free fall from a Hanoi apartment complex Sunday. Many called him a hero, though he dislikes the moniker.
