VIDEO: Nobody Expected This To Happen After A Toddler Fell From A Second Floor Window

Everybody makes fun of how easily babies bounce and how they are basically indestructible, but this video may just prove it!

From The Daily Mail:

This is the heart-stopping moment a 14-month-old toddler falls from a second floor window – but miraculously gets up with just a few cuts and one bruise.

CCTV footage shows the young child – from Ceara, Fortaleza in Brazil – falling from a town-centre building with such force that she is pushed forward with the impact.

In the first milliseconds of the accident it seems hard to believe the girl – known as Helena Beatrice Nascimento – has survived the drop.

But seconds later, the toddler, who lands prostrate face down on the cobbled stone ground lifts her head, pulls herself up onto her knees and even manages to raise herself into a shaky crouching position on her feet before falling backwards onto her bottom.

A moto-taxi driver is the first on the scene to rush to her aid. The man is so stunned that he’s not sure what to do.

As the baby reaches for him to be comforted, he looks up again and again in astonishment at the building, incredulous that she is not dead.

He is joined by another passer-by who picks up and cradles the stunned child.

The distraught mother appears shortly afterwards, rushing out of the building. In a desperate scene she grabs and comforts her baby relieved to find she is alive.

The infant lives with her mother and two older brothers who are five and seven-years-old.

Helena Beatrice’s grandmother, Maria Veraneide Silva Nascimento, who was visiting the family at the time, said: ‘Beatrice was sleeping in a bed right next to a window without bars in the bedroom.

‘She must have woken up around 7.30am and we think she managed to get to the window and fall out. We are still in a state of shock that she survived.’

Mrs Silva Nasciment added: ‘It’s a miracle that she’s alive. Anyone who sees this will think this is an impossible thing to happen.

‘But I believe an angel stopped my granddaughter from dying today.’

First of all, it’s probably not a good idea to put a baby in a room where they can reach the window and jump out. Second, thank God that baby is still alive. At the very least she should be suffering a broken bone, having fallen from that height!
