CHINA (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A pair of dramatic rescues were caught on video in China after two young girls found themselves in dangerous situations.
In the first video you see a man climb three stories up the side of a burning building to rescue a little girl inside.
Police say the man was on his way to work when he saw the fire and sprang into action.
He was able to tie a rope around the girl so firefighters could lower her to safety.
Meanwhile, a 4-year-old girl had to be rescued after she fell 55-feet down a hole at a construction site in China.
Rescuers lowered down an air line to make sure she could get enough oxygen during the rescue.
The hole was too narrow for firefighters to fit in so they made a loop in a rope and lowered it down to her.
She was able to get the rope around her and they pulled her out.
Officials say she's okay except for suffering from shock.
