Boy survives 90-foot fall.

Five-year-old Young-Jin Kim fell nine floors from the balcony of his apartment in Hamilton, Ontario and survived! The ground was soft from recent rains, which probably saved his life. He left the imprint you see in the picture. The boy suffered two broken legs and a broken pelvis, but no life-threatening injuries. Link -via Arbroath

I live in Hamilton, and this was in the papers for a few days. The kid's bike was stored on the balcony. He used it to climg high enough to look over, the bike shifted and he fell over. As the caption points out the ground was soft from rain (and from snow melt), and absorbed the impact of the hit. Anyone can 'break' a limb not have it shatter - it's called 'hairline'.
