PARIS - French police say an 18-month-old boy has survived a fall from an eighth-floor window of a Paris apartment by bouncing off an awning and into someone's arms, apparently uninjured.
Police say they have detained the parents of the baby boy for questioning.
According to police, the parents had gone for a stroll on Monday, a French holiday, and left the 18-month-old with his 3-year-old sister in the family apartment in eastern Paris.
Police said Tuesday the little boy somehow had access to an open window and fell out. He hit an awning of a ground-floor restaurant then bounced into the arms of a passer-by.
They said no injuries were uncovered by initial medical exams.
