Baby survives 7-story fall

An 18-month-old girl in Paris, France, appeared unhurt after falling seven stories and bouncing off an awning into a man's arms, witnesses told Le Parisien newspaper.

Witnesses said the child and a sibling had been left alone briefly Monday in their seventh-floor apartment in the city's 20th arrondissement, east of the central city. The girl fell out of a window, but a boy on the street saw her falling and alerted his father, who caught the baby after she bounced off the awning of a tobacco shop and cafe on the building's ground floor, the paper reported.

The man with the quick reflexes and good hands, a doctor, looked over the girl and didn't find any injuries, but handed her off to an ambulance crew to be safe, according to Le Parisien.

    she will save the human race in the future, unless her parents let her fall out of the window again, and the doctor is on duty. enough said

    After the man caught the baby. He immediately put the baby back on the 7th floor to see if he can do it again.

    I find it interesting that a baby falling out of a window can prompt so many people to talk about how God doesn't exist...

    We should really be worried about if the idiot parent gets to keep her kids. Who leaves a baby unattended in their apartment with an open window... ? Hmmm...

    What incredible timing – a fast thinking, well-educated doc just happens to be standing in the right place.
