A quick-thinking mother managed to narrowly save her toddler from injury, when she snatched her out of harm's way in the nick of time.

Dramatic CCTV footage captured the rescue incident.

In the video, the mother can be seen walking with her young child along a snow-covered road. She suddenly notices a thick slab of snow about to fall on top of them from a nearby high-rise.

Springing into action, the mum grabs the toddler just in time and makes it safely to the other side of the road, as the snow comes crashing down. A car can be seen braking to avoid hitting the fleeing pair.

According to a Daily Mail report, the thick slab of snow fell from a high-rise building in the city of Yaroslavl in western Russia.

The incident comes a week after a resident in the nearby city of Petrozavodsk died after a block of ice fell from a building and landed on him.
