This is the moment a man jumped off his roof and over his garden gates to rescue a toddler who had climbed out the window of a house opposite.
Landing Bojang, 30, saw the boy, believed to be around three, climb out a window onto the roof of his house in south London.
He said that he tried to shout at him to go inside. He added: ‘I asked my sister down in the garden to run across and ring the doorbell but I thought by the time she would get to the door it would be too late.’
