Baby falls from 5th floor window as mum turns back to do dishes… but SURVIVES after landing on washing lines – The Sun

A BABY boy who fell from a fifth floor window was saved by a set of washing lines on a balcony below.

His mother says her 11-month-old son must have been saved by a “guardian angel” after he climbed out of an open window while she cleaned the dishes.

The boy named Demyan fell on a washing line and metal frame on a third floor balcony in Lutsk, Ukraine – preventing him crashing 50ft to the ground below.

His mother Yulia Rogak, 21, explained: “I turned away for a moment and he was out of the window.

“I looked through the window and saw him hanging by one hand.

“I screamed in terror.

"I was in shock and didn't know what to do."

I looked through the window and saw him hanging by one hand."

A woman feeding stray cats also screamed after seeing the boy fall.

The screams alerted two passersby who set about rescuing the child dangling on the washing lines.

They climbed on a metal canopy over the doorway and one reached up to pluck the boy to safety.

The other lay flat on the canopy to cushion him in case he fell.

“I heard people screaming from below, I was scared even to look down,” said Yulia.

“Then I did look, and he was in the arms of the two men.”

The boy was also “in a state of shock”.

Children’s doctor Valentin Martynyuk said he had multiple injuries to his abdomen and chest, along with head scratches.

“He must have had a guardian angel that kept him alive,” many have said.

Earlier this month, 18-month-old girl plunged 150ft from a cruise ship window.

The little girl was said to have slipped from her granddad's arms and fell from the 11th floor of Royal Caribbean's Freedom of the Seas ship.

Tragically, she fell on to concrete below while the ship was docked in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

And in June, an inquest heard that a toddler died after falling from a faulty first-floor window when his mum left him playing for just seconds.

The two-year-old was found on the pavement by a horrified passerby outside a family friend's house in Tuebrook, Liverpool.
