Now, the man responsible for saving her life – Sebastien – has opened up about the shocking events and exactly how he did it.

Sebastien explained in a piece for his local paper:

“In front of me there were two windows.

“In one of them a pregnant woman was hanging – she was begging people below to catch her if she jumped down as
it was chaos.

“I went through the other window, and I clung to a vent. I was 15 metres above the ground and I held on for five minutes and then the pregnant woman, who was exhausted, asked me to help get her back inside.
“That is what I did.

“I do not know where she went afterwards – I returned to my hiding place which was not good.”

According to the Irish Mirrorthe woman, who remains unnamed, was able to get in touch with Sebastien and thank him.
