Mumbai, Jun 20:Sabera Mazhar Ali Khan (9), a Mumbra girl, fell from a five-storey building on Sunday but walked away with minor injuries. Doctors were unable to explain how she survived.

A Std V student of Urdu Municipal School, Sabera was playing on the terrace of the 45-foot Shabina Manzil in Kausa when she tried to jump from one wing of the building to the other. The gap between the two wings was just two feet, but Sabera didn’t make it.

Lucky: Sabera Khan (9) is a Std V student

She was taken to Rehmania Hospital, Kausa, where doctors said she had suffered no serious injuries.

Sabera, who lives in the A wing, recalled, “I was jumping from our building’s terrace to Wing C (which is under construction), when my foot slipped. I fell in between the two buildings. As I fell I managed to grab hold of a slab but couldn’t hold on to it for long.”

Sabera’s mother Shakila said, “Thank God my daughter is safe. This can happen to anyone, and not everyone is this lucky. A wall should be erected on the terrace for safety.”

Salim J Gaziani, a member of executive committee at Rehmania Hospital, said, “Sabera’s nose was bleeding and she vomited after admission, but she is now stable.”

Doctors were unable to explain how she survived the fall. “Even though she fell from a great a height, her CT Scan, X-ray and sonography have revealed there are no serious injuries. This is a miracle,” said Dr Sailesh Khandekar, a general surgeon at the hospital.
