Brit tourist saves 2-yr-old girl in four-story fall at US hotelApril 22nd, 2011 - 1:27 pm ICT by ANI
New York, April 22 (ANI): An unattended two-year-old girl miraculously survived a terrifying fall from a fourth-floor hotel balcony in the US after landing in the arms of a British tourist.
“It was a miracle,” said Orange County Sheriff’s Capt. Denise Rollins after the toddler emerged unscathed from her fall at an Orlando hotel.
The little girl’s parents were in the hotel room, apparently unaware that she had wandered onto the balcony, reports the New York Daily News.
According to Rollins, another tourist sitting poolside at the Econo Lodge Inn & Suites spotted the child dangling from the balcony.
The rescuer, identified by a Florida television station as a British tourist, quickly moved into position to make the remarkable catch after the little girl lost her grip.
The child was taken to a local hospital as a precaution, and authorities said no charges were pressed against anyone. (ANI)
