Catch of the Day

Toddler survives seven-floor fall in France - Yahoo! News: "An 18-month-old boy survived after falling seven floors and bouncing off a Paris cafe awning into the arms of a passer-by, witnesses said Tuesday.

'My son saw a little boy on a balcony. He had gone right outside the railing... I said to myself I mustn't miss him,' the toddler's saviour, local doctor Philippe Bensignor, told AFP, recounting Monday's drama."

    Did you ever see Truffaut's Small Change. Jackie always talks about the scene where a baby falls out a window and lands safely on the grass several floors below and happily crawls away.

    Life imitates art.

    In my mind's eye, he catches the toddler, spikes it and does a touchdown dance.
