Palm tree helps toddler survive fall from fourth floor apartment
Two-year-old girl is recovering after falling from a fourth-floor window
A two-year-old girl is recovering after falling from a fourth-floor window of an apartment in Miami on Monday.
A palm tree under the window helped slow the speed of the fall and the child landed in some bushes, Miami Fire Rescue Capt. Ignatius Carroll has said.
The child was being cuddled by her uncle and was crying when rescue crews arrived at the scene in Miami's Little Havana neighbourhood, Carroll told a local television station.
The girl was then taken to a hospital.
Miami Police Cmdr. Freddie Cruz told the TV station that detectives were trying to determine what led to the fall and whether the girl's parents bear any responsibility.
