A toddler survived a fall from the fourth floor of an apartment building in Miami.
Officials said a two-year-old fell from a window near Southwest 20th Avenue and Eighth Street, just after 7:30 a.m., Monday.
A palm tree below the window helped break her fall and she fell into surrounding shrubs, police said.
“When the first unit arrived, they found a 2-year-old female, who apparently fell from the window of a fourth floor apartment unit,” said City of Miami Fire Rescue Capt. Ignatius Carroll. “They found this child being cuddled by her uncle, and we are being told that she fell out of a window. It is believed that she experienced significant injuries because of a palm tree that sits, pretty much, below this window. The impact of hitting the palm tree actually guided her toward the shrubs that was on the grassy area, which provided for a more softer fall than actually striking the pavement.”
She was alert and crying when emergency crews took her to Jackson Memorial Hospital.
It remains unclear what led to her fall.
