A repairman is being lauded as a hero after he climbed out of an apartment window to rescue a 5-year-old boy on Monday.

Footage captured in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, shows the man climb from a sixth-story window to reach the boy as a crowd watches below.

The child was seen standing on the window ledge of a fifth-story window and crying out for his mother after being left home alone.

The man, who was not named, was installing cabinets on the floor above when he heard the boy's cries.

Video shows him free-climb down a water drain to the window below, where he grabs the boy's waist.

Neighbors said the boy's mother had left him in the apartment watching TV so she could go pick up her daughter.

"He has never done this before," the mother said, adding, "I will never leave him alone at home again."
