(Scroll down for video) A mother in China, collapsed on the pavement outside of her home next to her son who was badly injured.

According to the mother, the boy watched a cartoon video, showing someone jumping from a tall building with a parachute when he decided to try it.

Without telling anyone about his plans, the 7-year-old boy grabbed a big red umbrella and he used it as a parachute. The young boy jumped out of the window of his family’s penthouse, which is on the 10th floor of the building.

Luckily, the boy survived. According to witnesses, while falling, the child hit a power line, which slowed down the force of the fall.

The boy was rushed to the hospital, where he underwent surgery and is said to be in stable condition.
