‘Minions’ toy credited with saving Colorado girl who fell out of a window

A stuffed animal from the new animated movie Minions has been credited with breaking the fall of a 5-year-old Colorado girl who suffered only minor injuries after falling from a third-story apartment window, police said.

The child was playing in a bedroom when she fell backward out of an open window, Colorado Springs police said in a statement.

“Fortunately, when the child fell out of the window she continued holding on to a stuffed Minion teddy bear that is believed to have cushioned her fall,” the statement said.

The girl was brought to a local hospital where she was treated for a broken arm and released, police said.

“Thankfully none of the injuries have been serious, but people should make sure to have an adequate screen or some other way to block a child from open windows,” she said.

Minions centers on the adventures of Stuart, Kevin and Bob, three of the yellow, pill-shaped creatures who were Gru’s sidekicks in the first two Despicable Me films. The Universal Pictures film opened with $115.2 million at the box office, making it the second-largest opening ever for an animated movie in North America.
