Police Scale Building to Rescue Baby Hanging Out of a Window

It was a terrifying scene in Saransk, Russia.

It was a terrifying scene in Saransk, Russia, when a police officer scaled a building to save a baby. 

The baby’s father was allegedly drunk and tried to throw the 5-month-old out of the window, according to RT.

The Russian news outlet reports that neighbors told authorities they allegedly heard the man say he was going to drop her, while dangling her in the air.

Shocking video shows the cop slide himself over on the ledge, then push the man inside before any more harm could be done to the child.

Two more officers scale the ledge and enter the apartment after him, as onlookers watch in horror.

Police said the man was arrested, and the baby was taken to a medical facility.
