The "miracle baby," as he's now been dubbed, survived a tragic and nearly fatal fall from the balcony of his dad's Minneapolis apartment on Sunday. The balcony is 11 stories above the ground.
After landing on a bed of mulch, Little Musa sustained a slew of serious injuries — including a concussion, broken back, broken arms and bruising to his heart and lungs — but is, by all accounts, more than lucky to be alive. Now in critical-yet-stable condition at Hennepin County Medical Center, the little boy is being monitored closely and is heavily sedated as doctors treat him.
The terrible accident apparently happened in just a matter of seconds, while Musa was playing with his 3-year-old sister. Though the two were being looked after by their dad at the time, a family friend told WCCO that when their father left the room, the little girl opened the door to the balcony and Musa ran out.
What has everyone scratching their heads, though, is the fact that Musa appears to have slipped through the rails of the balcony — despite the fact that the rails were up to code at 47 inches high and 5.5 inches apart.
