A 7-year-old boy from China suffered serious injuries after plummeting 10 stories from an apartment building as he tried to use an umbrella as a parachute.
The child’s fall was broken by power lines, and images from social media showed the boy sprawled on the ground as people ran to assist him. A woman, believed to be the boy’s mother, collapsed at the scene.
The boy’s injuries were serious, but not life-threatening, WNYW reported.
