Baby survives fall from 7th floor by lucky landing

A two-year-old baby sustained no major injuries when she tumbled out of a seventh floor apartment in eastern Turkey, apparently saved by a lucky landing in snow, Anatolia news agency said on Sunday.

The unsupervised baby girl fell from the balcony of her family's seventh floor apartment but suffered no significant injuries when she soft-landed on a pile of snow that slid from the roof.

Doctors at a Mus city hospital where the toddler was rushed said "there is nothing to worry about for now" but that she would be kept in hospital care for a few more days for observation, the agency said.

The baby's mother, occupied in the kitchen when the incident happened, said she was shocked when neighbours brought her home after the fall.
