Boy in China survives after jumping 10 storeys with umbrella as parachute
A child in China who jumped from about 10 storeys using an umbrella as a parachute miraculously survived, reports said.
The seven-year-old jumped holding an umbrella after seeing a cartoon character parachute from a window doing the same thing.
While his apartment in Suzhou, Jiangsu is on the fifth floor, the height is equivalent to 10 storeys as the residences are penthouse duplexes, Chinese reports said.
