Manhattan Toddler Saved by Trash Container

By

Two-year-old Jayvin Cruz survived a 1:30 a.m. fall from the window of his family's third-floor apartment, thanks to the fact that he landed on the flexible screen top of a trashcan shed, as opposed to the Lower East Side sidewalk below. "I said, 'Whoa, good thing for that,' because otherwise the baby would've hit the concrete," a witness observed. Though Jayvin was unharmed, emergency responders took him to Bellevue as a precaution. His family told the Daily News that their landlord was supposed to install a safety grate on the window, but had not yet done so.
