Dylan Hayes, age 4, falls out third story window, flips, landing on his feet with no injuries

Four-year-old Dylan Hayes is alive and well today after falling out of third-story apartment window and landing on his feet. The boy, who is from Aurora, Colorado, was standing on a couch talking to neighbors when the fall occurred.

Jessica Hayes, the boy’s mother, was doing some cleaning around the house when her son took his tumble.

“I was terrified,” Jessica said. “I didn’t know what I was going to see when I got down to the ground floor.”

Dylan did two somersaults on his way down and landed on the rocks underneath the window unharmed and on his feet. He did go to the hospital after the fall as a precaution but was released shortly thereafter, according to CBS Local

“I didn’t know what I was going to go down to, like a child who was just lying there, or a child with blood coming out of him,” Jessica said. “I feel beyond lucky. There must have been something watching over Dylan that day,”

A neighbor who was talking to Dylan wasn’t sure quite what had happened.

“I heard a crash, and the next thing I know I just saw a blur,” neighbor Pat Roush said.

Dylan’s grandmother was at the apartment as well. She was cleaning out the refrigerator when she saw her grandson fall out of the window. “There had to have been angels watching over him,” Kelli Hayes said.

Dylan was certainly lucky not to be hurt in fall

“I fall … really, really far,” he said.

The incident happened a few weeks ago. Jessica has moved out of the apartment and is now looking for a place on the first floor. She hopes that her story can be a cautionary tale for other parents with young children.

“It’s gotten easier since it happened two weeks ago to not blame myself,” Jessica said. “I wish the danger would have crossed my mind, which it didn’t.”

    It is just usual lie from the airhead evil animal american dogs. Remember Eric Clapton’s son jumped out of the windows thinking he was superman and became a dead boy?
    Go ahead to hold for approval to edit and block my comment. I will send the airhead evil animal american and their followers to hell anyway.
