Oh, I'm looking forward to the comments in this thread based on the dialogue in TFA.

What a relief for the family, though, that their baby may indeed recover from such a tremendous fall.

I remember a long time ago a baby fell from the peak of a ferris when in the next town over. Merely had a bruise from the fall. Evidently, baby bones are a lot like cartilage.

Their heads are soft. They just bounce.

My friend fell on top of her 10 month old daughter while walking up the stairs and broke her little leg. Watching the baby using the cast as a peg leg while learning to walk was hilarious.

Ah, the Cedar Riverside apartments.  AKA "The Ghetto in the Sky" or "The Crack Stacks".

As ugly as those buildings are, I do love that area of the West Bank.  Very, very diverse, and some great bars.

People Who Annoy You: So, drunk babies are indestructible?


I saw a drunk friend fall from the ninth floor, his spleen popped like a ballon but he lived, probably due to drunkeness.

Hurr durr family of the year award.

Wouldn't normal parents move into a place and immediately see that rails six inches apart might be bad for a baby? I don't know, maybe I am just used to hanging out with brilliant people (in comparison).

i used to work in a plant nursery when i was 16... and this might surprise you, but i remember, in the dead of summer, some of the bagged mulches, especially dark wood mulches, could smell infinitely worse than the 40 lbs bags of cow shiat.  so, uh, yeah.

/ cedar, on the other hand, that stuff smelled great.  but, the chips would poke out of the bag and stab you.  ah, the rough and tumble world of a shiat carrying plant nursery worker.

FTA: "This is such a tragedy," he said. "The parents are blaming themselves."

Well ... yeah.

Everyone makes mistakes, and the father may have only turned his back for a minute, but why the hell was a baby on the balcony in the first place? Also, how did it get over the railing?

Friend of mine pushed out a screen when she was about a year old. From a 4th story apartment. She hit a storm roof above the first floor balcony and it changed her trajectory from straight down to an angled fall. Was in the hospital for about a week, but 8 years later she is a healthy happy child. It happens, and its insanely amazing how much a kid of that age can take. Which is why I abuse my 7 month old.

/Kidding on the last part.

Should rephrase that, a friend of mines daughter. Blah heh little one kept me up all night and woke me up early. Need coffee.

Cashew: People Who Annoy You: So, drunk babies are indestructible?

Knew a guy who drunkenly climbed up one of those electrical pylons and fell from about 50 ft up. He was really badly injured but lived. Doctor said that being drunk probably saved him from being killed by the fall since he went limp as he fell and just kind of bounced.

From TFA: The grandmother told me that the daughter [age 3] opened the balcony door.

I have a three year old and a baby, and can attest to the fact that kids can be incredibly stupid in a very short amount of time. If it was the first time the three year old had opened a door or figured out the child proofing, then there was no way to know it would be an issue.

Someone should do a study at what age babies lose their flexibility and pliability.

Babies also weigh very little and don't build up a whole lot of momentum.

No, the 3-year old sister was there too. She probably pushed her brother over the railing or through the bars.

Kids are not stupid. They are inventive and curious and trying desperately to figure out how to survive in the world of their exile. What most parents cannot grasp is that their young children are not nearly as interested in sex as the parents are and therefore have to find other ways to occupy their time. Thankfully for the parents this stage only lasts a few short years, until about age six.

Possibly. I had to look up what the railing is like.

I could see a small child going right through that.

Who knows?!?!? But it's well known in Christian circles that if you pretend to believe in God, you can trick HIM and go to Heaven, where you can worship HIM forever!
