An 18-month-old girl has miraculously survived after falling out of the window – of a sixth-floor apartment.
A Paris apartment
The little girl, who was left unattended by her parents, was playing with her four-year-old sister when she somehow fell from the Paris apartment window.
Her first stroke of luck was landing on the awning of a café below, which helped break her fall.
Then by an amazing stroke of luck the child was caught – by a passing doctor. According to reports she appeared to have no serious injuries but was taken to a hospital to be kept under observation.
One bystander who saw the incident told the daily Le Parisien: “He must have played rugby for years to have developed reflexes like that.”
It’s unclear how the incident came to take place.
A police spokesperson said: “The parents were absent, and it’s a bit difficult questioning the two girls, given their age.”
