Houston Community News >> Chinese Baby Survives 8 Story Fall

7/13/2007 SHANGHAI- A 10-month-old girl survived an eight-story plunge after her drunken father apparently threw her out a window during an argument with his mother-in-law, the Shanghai Daily said on Friday. The child suffered only a broken leg when her fall was slowed by branches of a tree and she landed in a flower bed, the newspaper said. She was in hospital but out of danger. Her father, a 26-year security guard, was in detention, the newspaper said. In an interview on a Shanghai TV station, the father said the fall was an accident.
