Toddler Survives 4th-Floor Fall Thanks To A Clothesline
A toddler survived a fall from a fourth-floor window after hitting the metal bar of a clothesline that directed him into a net above another laundry-drying area.
The 2-year-old, named Santino, was treated for scratches after the plunge from a window at his home in Palma on the Spanish island of Mallorca on Monday night, reported the Diario de Mallorca.
“It was a miracle,” the toddler’s mother, Débora, told Ultima Hora on Wednesday.
Neighbors reported hearing a loud bang and the child’s screams, and found the boy sitting on the ground. A net put up by a resident to shield drying clothes cushioned the impact, they told Diario de Mallorca.
