The man, a retired soldier, supported the child with one hand for around 30 minutes until rescuers were able to smash open the front door of her home to lift her in from inside.
The toddler was said to be unhurt from the incident which took place on Sunday morning in Nanning, Guangxi province of southern China.
The little girl’s mother left the toddler at home by herself so she could take her son to a doctor appointment.
The woman told the local media: ‘She was asleep. I thought I’d be back really quickly. I didn’t think she would climb this far.’
The young child was spotted by other residents after she fell out of the flat by accident and was trapped by the neck between the window grille.
A clip released by Nanning Television shows the little girl desperately swinging her legs while onlookers gasp in horror.
