A five year old girl is in a critical condition in Shenzhen after she jumped out of a 6th storey window holding an umbrella. Surveillance cameras caught the horrible moment when she struck the ground.
The girl had been playing in a printing plant where her father worked as a security guard, she was left alone in the plant common room while her father was in the gym, according to Shenzhen News.
Reports suggest that the girl may have been inspired by a cartoon she’d seen, but this hasn’t been confirmed. Assuming that an umbrella will work as a parachute is fairly standard child logic, though most don’t experiment from such a great height.
The girl suffered multiple bone fractures and her condition is currently unstable. Her medical bills are estimated to be in excess of 30,000 yuan.
