A young man in China has been hailed a hero after his attempt to save a woman who fell from the eleventh floor of a building.

Mr Feng was leaving a restaurant in Enchi City in central China’s Hubei Province, when he heard a woman’s screams as she fell from the 11th floor of a building.

While many people fled the area, Mr Feng threw himself into danger and tried to catch the woman.

His attempt to break the woman’s fall as she plummeted to the ground knocked him unconscious.

Despite his efforts, the woman did not survive the fall. Mr Feng suffered injuries to his legs including a knee fracture and ruptured ligaments.

“I don’t regret. It’s a shame that I couldn’t save her,” said Feng.
