A Turkish store owner has become a worldwide hero after catching a misbehaving four-year-old who fell 15 feet from a mall escalator.According to the Daily Mail, Ali Apari saw the boy clinging to the outside handrail of an up-going escalator and rushed to where he knew the boy would fall.

As the boy reached the top, the rail wound back into the stairs, the boy lost his hold and fell into Apari’s outstretched arms.

The child’s father can be seen casually thanking Apari before walking from the shopping centre.

The rescue occurred in May, but the footage from Turkey’s capital has been making the rounds and become a global sensation.
