Amazing story: Infant in Paris falls 7 stories, bounces and lives!

An astounding story of fast thinking and fantastic luck.

A baby boy survived a fall from a seven-story window in Paris by bouncing off a café awning and into the arms of the doctor who saw the infant fall Monday evening.

The 18-month-old toddler was playing unsupervised with his 3-year-old sister when the accident occurred.

The parents were apparently out leaving the kids home alone and are now locked up for child endangerment. This happened in the 20e arronidissement.

If you click through, the other amazing coincidence is that the cafe was closed for the Toussaint holiday, and the awning should have been folded up. It had jammed and had been left open, luckily for the baby who was unharmed. That’s a kid who should buy lottery tickets.
