‘Miracle’ baby survives 3-storey fallMay 18th, 2009 - 1:31 pm ICT by ANI
New York, May 18 (ANI): A 2-1/2-year-old boy miraculously survived a terrifying plunge from a third-floor window with minor injuries.
According to the neighbours and fire officials, the toddler identified as Tristan, fell from the window at E. 226th St. in Williamsbridge, Bronx and crashed straight onto the concrete.
“When you hear a baby crying like that, you are going to look out. I just heard the baby crying, and the father rushing to him,” the New York Daily News quoted a neighbour as saying.
The toddler was rushed to Jacobi Medical Centre by the paramedics.
Fire officials said that he suffered no broken bones, but had a few cuts and bruises.
Cops said that the 30-foot fall appeared to be an accident.
The window from which the baby fell was closed with a bedpost pressed against it and there were no window guards. (ANI)
