Child, in Sleep, Drops Three Stories
and Lives.

Josephine Carter, 415 Cherry street, a negro child, 2 1/2 years old, performed a feat yesterday afternoon that not many children have performed and lived to tell the tale. The child was asleep by an open window, three stories above ground. About 2 p. m. the little one fell the entire distance to the ground.

The mother knew nothing of the accident and believed her baby asleep when she saw it running toward her crying. Dr. Paul Lux, who went with the police ambulance, examined the baby, but found not a bruise, not even a mark of the fall. It is believed that the little one may have received a slight concussion of the brain.
