Toddler's 16-foot balcony plunge
A YOUNG child cheated death after falling from a second floor balcony window in Drogheda.
The amazing incident took place in the Willow Apartment complex off the Rathmullen Road.
'She really did have a close call,' said a senior garda source. 'She managed to catch hold of the window sill on her way down, which managed to slow down the fall.'
The child was taken to Our Lady of Lourdes hospital where she was treated for shock and minor injuries received in the fall.
