20 Month Old Boy Survives 6 Story Fall After Landing On The Roof Of A Car
If you ask Edward Lu, he parked in the right place, at the right time.
When a 20-month-old boy fell out of a six-story window last week, he landed directly onto the roof of Lu’s car, which broke his fall and likely saved his life.
“That’s a big dent, I couldn’t believe it,” Lu, of Redmond, Washington, told KOMO. “If I had driven on [Thursday] I don’t know what would have happened.”
The toddler was taken to a local hospital where he was placed in the ICU in serious but stable condition, according to the news station.
“If the car wasn’t there,” Redmond Police Department officer James Perry explained to KOMO, “it would have been pavement the child would have fallen onto and this would have been a much different ending.”
