Three-Year-Old Survives Five-Story Drop

Parents and other family members are rejoicing after a three-year-old survived a life-threatening scare.

Police in Stamford responded to the Fairfield Apartments after onlookers reported seeing a small child fall out of a 2nd-story window overlooking the parking lot. According to Stamford Police Sgt. Brian Butler, the child was found after her fall crying and moving around. She survived by landing in a patch of fresh mulch, a feat made all the more impressive considering the considerable height involved. Although it was only a second-story apartment, the architecture of the property meant the window was more like four-to-five stories high.

Butler said the girl was being attended to be two family members, one of which has a partial disability of sight. The fall triggered an investigation with the Department of Children and Families.

The child was taken to Stamford Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, where she's listed in stable condition.

Potential Preaching Angles: With God, a miracle is always possible. When there is life and growth, calamity can be absorbed.
