A 5 year old boy's mother was cleaning the apartment and noticed her son was missing. Next, she heard him screaming and moaning. She ran outside and saw that he was on the ground, lying on his back.
Police think the boy was playing on a mountain bike near a balcony and then fell over 90 feet, landing on his back on a grassy lawn beneath him. If you look at the photo associated with this article you can see the impression his back left on the ground.
The boy miraculously survived the fall and is expected to make a full recovery.
"He's probably the luckiest person I've ever come across to have gone down 90 feet and hit soft ground,'' said police. "If it had been two weeks ago, it might have been a different story.''
He was not without injury though and after the fall he was taken to McMaster University Medical Center and was found to have suffered two broken legs, a broken pelvis and internal injuries and had to go through a 3 hour surgery to fix his broken legs.
