Miracle Toddler Survives Mom's Suicide Jump
The incident occurred at the sea resort of Etretat, where rescue workers found the girl alive at the foot of the cliff after her mother apparently jumped with her in her arms.
Sadly, the mother, 25, did not survive the fall.
According to investigators, she had been depressed before deciding to take her own life and that of her infant daughter.
But, in an amazing twist of fate, the mother's body actually cushioned the girl's impact with the ground, enabling her to survive. The child suffered several broken bones and a concussion in the fall.
We wish this little one a quick recovery.
