Toddler survives 7-story fall from window in Antratsit stuck in apricot tree

LUGANSK, July 11 (Lugansk Media Centre) – A three-year-old toddler has survived a seven-story fall from an Antratsit nine-storey house window as an apricot tree broke his fall saving the child's life, the Emergencies Ministry said.

The incident occurred on July 10 at around 7 p.m. The child born in 2015 tumbled from the window under the circumstances unclear at this time.

"His mother was getting things ready before taking the toddler out for a walk and left him alone for a minute," the local administration official said.

It was enough time for the boy to climb the windowsill, open the window and fall out of it as the mosquito net gave way under his weight, and to get caught by an apricot tree growing in front of the house.

Their neighbors lowered the toddler and took him to the hospital where he was diagnosed with catatrauma, fractured upper arm bone and traumatic shock. He is in the ICU in stable serious condition.

His parents were not immediately available for comments.
