A baby with a “guardian angel” fell from a fifth floor window but miraculously survived when he landed on washing lines.
The 11-month-old boy climbed out of an open window in Lutsk, Ukraine while his mother was cleaning dishes.
The boy, named Demyan, fell on a washing line and metal frame on a third floor balcony – preventing him crashing 50ft to the ground below.
“I turned away for a moment and he was out of the window,” said his mother Yulia Rogak, 21.
“I looked through the window and saw him hanging by one hand,” she said.
“I screamed in terror.”
A woman feeding stray cats also screamed after seeing the boy fall.
The screams alerted two men who were passing by and they raced to rescue the child that was dangling on the washing lines.
They climbed on a metal canopy over the doorway and one reached up to pluck the boy to safety, local media reports.
The other lay flat on the canopy to cushion him in case he fell.
“I heard people screaming from below, I was scared even to look down,” said Yulia.
“Then I did look, and he was in the arms of the two men.”
