BRONX (WABC) -- It's a miracle she survived after falling more than 50 feet from that window and that a paramedic just happened to be walking by moments later
"Thirty-five years with EMS, this is actually the first time I came up by myself to see a baby on the ground. I never thought that I would see in this day and age a baby out a window," paramedic Willis Sands said.
'I thought it was a doll laying on the sidewalk. So I went over. Are you ok? I yelled for the mother. I saw there was blood," he said.
Sands screamed for someone - anyone to call 911 around 11:30 this morning because the baby wasn't breathing.
He used those crucial moments to turn the girl on her side and clear her airway.
As the infant started breathing and moaning, Sands and neighbor Marion Irizarry saw a man looking down from a Cruger Avenue apartment.
It was not clear why the little girl fell from the window. The investigation was continuing.
The girl remained at Jacobi Medical Center in critical condition, being treated for head trauma.

I sure the heck hope that the window wasn't open intentionally with two 2-year-old babies in an apartment 50 feet up. I won't leave my kids' windows open, with a screen in, up on the second floor. And they're 7! I do get a bit more paranoid than I probably need to be. I hope that she is okay.
