1 Year Old Survives After a 7 Floor Fall

Yahoo News recently had an interesting news story about an 18 month old boy who survived, unharmed, after falling from a balcony 7 floors off the ground; after bouncing off a Paris cafe awning into the arms of a passer-by.

"My son saw a little boy on a balcony. He had gone right outside the railing... I said to myself I mustn't miss him," the toddler's saviour, local doctor Philippe Bensignor, told AFP, recounting Monday's drama.

The chances of surviving the fall, or even falling into an awning then into a stranger's arms is astronomical. Obviously, this little boy had some serious luck, or should I say, spiritual protection, that day.
