A toddler recently survived a 70-foot fall out of his apartment window thanks to his fall being broken by a car.
Parents of children over the age of two reading this will know all too well that if you take your eyes off your kids for more than two seconds then they will likely be up to no good. Nothing is safe when you share a house with toddlers. Think everything is safe and out of reach? Think again.
Hopefully, even if your toddler does get up to no good they will do nothing more than screw with the TV or draw on the walls. Annoying, but nothing that can't be fixed. Just be thankful that they haven't decided to climb out of a window like a toddler in Seattle recently opted to do, reports CafeMom.

The 20-month-old was happily playing with his older sister while his mom was in another room. That's when the little one decided to make a break for the open window. He climbed out and fell 70-feet, landing on a car below. Thanks to that car, the toddler reportedly suffered serious injuries but managed to survive the fall.
The mom was alerted to the fact that something was terribly wrong when her four-year-old daughter ran out of the room screaming. When she looked out of the window she discovered that her son had fallen from the window. Police rushed to the scene and were shocked to discover that not only was the child alive, but he was conscious and, understandably, crying. As you can see, the car was dented by the blow from the toddler, but had it not been there to break his fall the story would have had a very tragic ending.
It also turns out that the car isn't always parked there. It belongs to a neighbor and was only there at that time of day as he had decided to cycle to work that morning. "If I had driven in today I don't know what would've happened. We're all lucky I guess that I biked in rather than driving," he told reporters. He also said that he doesn't believe in miracles, but doesn't know how else to explain this. We're with you on that one.
