NEW YORK – A Manhattan toddler who fell from her second-floor bedroom window has survived with just bumps and bruises after landing on a plastic garbage can.
Firefighters who work next to the 2-year-old girl's Harlem apartment building said she apparently was leaning on a guard rail in the window before she fell Wednesday evening.
The girl fell almost 20 feet into an alleyway.
Firefighters said they heard the thud when she landed in the garbage. They said it was a miracle she landed there.
The girl was treated at a hospital before being sent back home.
