A ‘Minions’ Toy Saved This Little Girl’s Life After A Frightening Fall

Is there anything that they can’t do? A stuffed Minions toy saved a little girl’s life when she tumbled out of a third-floor apartment window. The toy is credited with breaking her fall. Here’s how it played out according to Reuters:

The child was playing in a bedroom when she accidentally fell backwards out of an open window, Colorado Springs police said in a statement.

“Fortunately, when the child fell out of the window she continued holding on to a stuffed Minion teddy bear that is believed to have cushioned her fall,” the statement said.

The girl was transported to a local hospital where she was treated for a broken arm and released, police said.

All of this after Minions made $115.2 million at the box office last week, making it the second-highest animated film opening in North America behind Shrek the Third. 

You can go ahead and expect that these little yellow guys will rake in even more money after people hear about this story.
