Sky News has reported a teacher has saved a child from falling from a eigth floor by cathing her in his hands, Ive watched the video twice, but it looks to me like the child lands flat on the floor. How blatently wrong can the news be?

I think he does catch her, but the momentum causes him to drop her as you can see him fall forward shortly after. I'd say he broke her fall, which could be why she is still alive.

the bloke's arms do suddenly drop down as the child passes so he did probably break the fall

Maybe the 3 second rule applies?
It'll be fine as long as you pick it up quick and brush the fluff off.

He took the girl to a local hospital to find all that was wrong with her was a slight rib fracture. oO

The thing that saved the kids life is being a kid. Young no tension through the body and lucky.

It looks set up to me. One woman (in a red top) shuffles off without looking back, another woman (with a pram) turns away straight after the event. I also doubt anybody would have time to react quickly enough to somebody shouting out of the blue that a baby's falling and run over there. Your brain would take a few moments to process what's happening. The size of the object that falls looks a lot smaller than the actual child that's carried off as well. The guy also uses his hands to catch the object, which certainly wouldn't make much of a difference in breaking the fall. If it was his arms then that would be different but it passes straight through his hands. It's got fake written all over it and I imagine it's some Chinese guy looking for a bit of internet fame.

Why did the second guy step back as the kid was about to hit the floor? Was he worried of getting splatter on his finest polyester trousers

He "caught" her in the same way that Bubba caught Cornette:
