What an incredible, but scary story!!!
A toddler from Devon, England was roughhousing with his brother when he accidentally fell out of their bedroom open window.
Leo Fernando fell FIFTEEN FEET and hit hard concrete, but managed to escape with only a bruise knee and cut forehead!
Medical officials believe the child escaped the incident without any serious injuries because he told them he thought he was Buzz Lightyear, from Toy Story, and therefore wasn't afraid to fly. His body did not stiffen up, and so when he hit the ground - he just bounced up!
Here's what his mother Emma said:
"I was in the other room when I heard Antony screaming 'oh my God Leo's fallen out of the window.' I screamed too and I rushed to the garden. I didn’t know what I’d find. I found Leo standing up with blood on his face and crying."
Here's what his mom said the nurses then told her:
"The nurses said what saved his life was that he wasn’t scared and didn't stiffen up when he fell. He also bounced off the lower window sill which broke his fall a bit. The nurses and doctors couldn’t believe it. He has been the talk of the hospital. He must have wings and he’s a massive fan of Buzz lightyear so maybe he can fly too."
As for the boy - according to his mama - he's feeling like his normal self again!
"He is back to his normal self, climbing everywhere."
Such an amazing story!!!
This kid takes the phrase "to infinity and beyond" to a whole new level!!!
