Toddler survives plunge from third floor apartment



A toddler survived a terrifying fall from the window of a third floor apartment on the Lower East Side after miraculously landing on a rubbish bin.

Cops say the two-year-old boy fell out of a third floor window and was transported to Bellevue Hospital in stable condition.

Witnesses say the boy, identified as Jayvin Cruz, landed on a plastic garbage container instead of on the ground, and thankfully only suffered some non life-threatening bumps and bruises.

“I said, ‘Whoa, good thing for that,’ because otherwise the baby would’ve hit the concrete,” Earl Boyd, who heard the boy hit the garbage shed from a nearby park, told NBC News. “The baby was still crying. I said, ‘Oh, good, the baby’s alive.”

Reports say the child’s parents retrieved him almost immediately after he fell. His grandmother, Carmen Fernandez, 59, said Jayvin had been playing in a room while his father slept on the couch.

“I opened my eyes, everybody’s running and screaming, ‘What happened? What happened?'” she told ABC News. “So I was running too.”
