Woman catches toddler who fell 10 storeys

State media report a toddler is in critical condition in east China after surviving a 10-story fall by being caught by a passing woman.

Media reports say the 2-year-old girl Niu Niu was left unattended Saturday in the family's 10th floor apartment outside Hangzhou city when her grandmother went to run an errand.

The reports say passer-by Wu Juping saw the toddler hanging from the window and then ran over when she saw Niu Niu fall.

Sunday's reports say 31-year-old Wu broke her arm catching the child, who is hospitalized with internal bleeding and other injuries.
