Girl, 5, survives 100ft fall from window
A five-year-old girl had an amazing escape after she fell from the window of a 10th floor flat, hit a ground floor awning and survived.
Ye Zixu suffered only scratches and bruises in the 100ft fall from her family's flat in the Chinese city of Chongqing.
Yan, a street vendor who saw what he initially thought was a red doll falling, said she made a loud bang when she hit the awning.
"I only realised it was actually a kid when somebody shouted that a child had fallen from a high window," he said.
"We thought she couldn't possibly have survived - and then we heard crying from the top of the awning."
A young man grabbed a ladder to check on the girl and was amazed to see that she was already sitting up.
Ye Zixu crawled to the edge of the awning to be helped down - but slipped and fell.
Luckily, she was caught by another witness, dentist Jiang Yuansheng, who ran with the girl to a nearby hospital.
She was later transferred to the city's South West Hospital where doctors pronounced her fit and well, but for a slight myocardical contusion.
