A little Sydney girl's quick thinking may have saved her sister's life today after a massive sheet of metal nearly fell on them.
The metal awning had blown off a Guildford shop front and was headed straight for the young girls, who were believed to be sisters.
The pair were sitting on a street bench at the time while their mum shopped in a Christmas gift store.
One of them stood up, noticed the awning flying towards them and yanked her sister out of the way.
The cause of the roof failing is expected to be the subject of a WorkCover investigation.
