Toddler Falls Six Floors Unhurt

An 18-month-old girl in Paris fell out of a sixth-story apartment window Monday afternoon. She bounced off a canopy over a ground-floor cafe and into the arms of a doctor who was passing by!

The man who caught the girl was walking by with his wife and son when the boy spotted the girl falling.

Another witness told Le Figaro that the doctor positioned himself by the awning and caught the girl in his arms after she bounced off it.

The witness, Francois, said the girl cried a bit at first but quickly calmed down.

The doctor, identified as Philippe Benseniot by France Info, said it was pure luck.

“I was there at the right time,” he told France Info. “I’m happy for the little girl.”

The child was taken to a hospital but was found to be uninjured. Link -via Fortean Times
