Buenos Aires, Argentina, Jul 2, 2017 / 15:03 pm America/Denver (CNA).
The doctors at the Children's Hospital in San Miguel, Argentina, find no explanation for the quick recovery of Martin Chain – a three-year-old boy who fell from the ninth floor when he was playing on the balcony of his apartment.
The June 7 accident left the boy on the verge of death. However, he only took 20 days to recover and shows no signs of long-term complications.
“I was working when I got a voice mail from my husband Maximo. He was screaming. He told me that Martin had fallen off the balcony,” the child's mother, Florencia Núñez, told the local Clarin newspaper.
The day of the accident, Martin's father was fixing something to eat when the little boy went by himself out to the balcony and climbed up onto the railing while playing. Martin then fell almost 100 feet down to the courtyard of the building with nothing breaking the impact.
“As he peered out, Maxi saw Piti (Martin) face down, lying on a patch of wet ground amid debris. And he saw him move,” Núñez said.
