A stuffed Minions toy has saved the life of a five-year-old girl in Colorado who tumbled three storeys from a bedroom window, reports the Denver Post.
The unnamed child escaped with only a broken arm after holding on to the toy, which cushioned her fall. The accident took place on the evening of 16 July at an apartment in North Murray Boulevard, Colorado Springs. The girl has now returned home from hospital.
“Fortunately, when the child fell out of the window, she continued holding on to a stuffed Minion teddy bear that is believed to have cushioned her fall,” a police spokesperson told the Post. “The child was transported to a hospital and treated for a broken arm and later released”.
