Disposable Diaper Breaks Baby's Fall And Saves His Life
Caua Felipe Massaneiro survived a 30-foot fall because his diaper snagged on a security spike embedded in the concrete wall around his apartment building in the northeastern Brazilian city of Recife.
The toddler was treated for minor fractures at an nearby hospital, where spokesman Gilberto Tenorio said he was in stable condition.
A local newspaper quoted Caua's father, 23-year-old Alexandre Cesar Massaneiro as saying that his son climbed onto a sofa underneath the window he fell from -
"something he had never done before."
"It wasn't the diaper that saved him," Massaneiro told the newspaper. "It was God."SOURCE
