Stuffed Cow Saved 2-Year-Old Boy Who Fell Out Window

A 2-year-old MA boy is lucky to be alive after falling from a second-floor window with his stuffed animal.

The boy, whose name was withheld by authorities, was bouncing on his bed Wednesday afternoon and accidentally sailed right through an open window, the Globe reported.

He fell 16 feet onto the concrete.

Luckily Luis landed on his stuffed cow, which broke his fall and left him with minimal injuries. Luis Estrada is the boy's great uncle. The family moved to the USA five months ago from Guatemala, and the boy's uncle says Luis carries the cow with him everywhere. "I thank God for everything, he was watching over us".

Eduardo was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital as a precaution and was released yesterday, Kyes said.

He told the Boston Herald: 'He was very lucky. He said that he tries to keep his 4-year-old son away from the windows at all times.

Quateri said the incident was the first of its kind in his 25-year career, although Kyes said a child falling out of a window is not uncommon.

Family members said they still are not sure how he fell out of the window.
