I just read about that on the Guardian! The pictures were so crazy, that baby is sooo lucky to be alive.

I think God must have been looking after that kid for Sure!

I`ve asked one of my Physics peers to do the maths on this (velocity, stopping distance, f=ma etc...)
it would be interesting to see the maths behind this RARE (and fortunate) occurrence.

What a horrible story, and what a wonderful story to come out of that horror. I'll bet lots of prayers were being said by that family as they placed that baby into God's hands.

Thank goodness for the baby. Too bad the rest were not able to be saved. Such a sad story.
