Paris baby survives fall from 7th-floor flat

Bounces off awning into the arms of a passerby

by

A 15-month-old baby girl survived a seven story fall after she bounced off an awning into the arms of a man in Paris. The tot had been playing unsupervised with her older sister when she fell out of the window. “He must have played rugby for years to have developed reflexes like that,” a bystander reported the daily paper, Le Parisien. The baby was lucky: normally the cafe owner closes the awning because people throw their cigarette butts on it. The baby girl in the hospital, but is virtually unscratched.
