A child in Madhya Pradesh's Tikamgarh had a miraculous escape after he fell from his second floor apartment and landed on a rickshaw that was passing by, news agency ANI reports. The incident has been caught on camera as the CCTV footage has been shared on Twitter by ANI, and is of course viral by now.
The child's father Ashish Jain spoke to ANI after the accident and said that his son was playing in their second floor apartment and fell from there after losing balance. "He was playing on the second floor with family members. He fell from the railing after he lost his balance," Ashish Jain was quoted as saying by ANI.
It is nothing short of a miracle that a rickshaw was passing by that apartment exactly at that moment and the child landed on the back-seat of the vehicle, as seen in the footage. The rickshaw-puller and others rushed to attend to the child.
