(Scroll down for video) A family is grateful that their son is alive after he fell 100 feet from the family’s balcony.
The 15-month-old Musa Dayib of Minneapolis, Minnesota, has survived the fall from the balcony on the 11th floor.
The tragedy took place after the baby’s father, Guled Ahmed, went into the kitchen while he was playing with his two children.
Shortly thereafter, his three-year-old daughter ran to the kitchen saying “the baby fell.”
Ahmed looked over the balcony railing and saw the baby on the ground, 11 floors below. He grabbed his daughter and ran down the stairs to get to his son, who to everyone’s amazement, was conscious and crying.
The toddler is now in a critical but stable condition after falling from the high Riverside Plaza Apartments, where he lived with his family.
Dr. Tina Slusher of the hospital’s pediatric intensive care unit said: “If you and I fell so far, we would be dead.” However, the child nearly missed the pavement and instead landed on a soft patch.
