The family of four, believed to be living in north-eastern Chinese city Harbin, were relaxing together in their living room before the incident occurred.

One of the two toddler girls is seen in the security footage throwing a ball while the other one is playing on the floor.

The child playing with the toy suddenly fell backwards as she knocked over a full-body mirror leaning against the wall.

Rocked by the movement, the glass furniture is seen tilting before falling towards the other little girl who is lying on the floor.

The Chinese father, who was standing on the other side of the room, spotted the dangerous scene and rushed to his daughter’s rescue.
