Nothing scares the living daylights out of a parent like a child trapped in a perilous situation.

A four-year-old girl was rescued from a 20-meter-high air conditioner outside a residential building, after she climbed out of the window of her house and winded up on a ledge, in Nantong, East China's Jiangsu province, on Feb 25, the microblog of CCTV News reported.

The girl was reportedly left alone because her mother had gone out shopping.
