Chinese boy survives 20-story fall from window

A 10-year-old Chinese boy has survived falling 20 stories from an apartment window and landing on a parked car.

A doctor at the People's Hospital of Guizhou in southern China says the boy suffered skull fractures and bleeding on the brain and remains under close observation.

The state-run Xinhua News Agency says the boy fell from the open apartment window Monday morning and his fall shattered the car's back window.

The doctor surnamed Han in the neurosurgery department says it is a miracle the boy survived.

The Xinhua report cites police as saying the fall is assumed to be accidental.

Last month, a New York man survived after falling 39 stories and crashing through a car's back window.
