The desperate hours!

A 5-year-old boy punished by his mother to stay at home alone in Minsk, Belarus climbed out of a window of a 7th floor flat and fell. Luckily, his neighbors used a blanket to catch the frightened boy.

In the video, the boy struggled at the window frame before his neighbour saw him and quickly fetched a blanket to hold up, in case the boy slipped.

At last, the boy lost his grip and fell down, but was caught successfully. The momentum made the blanket torn, yet the boy survived though he fell to the ground. A doctor at the spot did first aid for him and then sent him to hospital. The hospital said that the boy had internal hemorrhage but complete rehabilitation was possible.
