'Super-mum' shows perfect reflexes to catch book falling on child's head

A mother was shocked at her own reflexes by catching a book falling off a shelf onto her child in eastern China. Video filmed in the city of Nanjing in Jiangsu Province on August 28 shows a woman and her two sons sitting on a sofa to watch TV. However, a book suddenly fell off the shelves behind the woman and without looking she stretched her arm out quickly and caught the book. After she caught the book, she was amazed by her own quick reaction. The woman said she saw the book's reflection in the TV and had a knee-jerk reaction to catch it.
