That's cool that the kid lived, sounds like a miracle! Did he fall into like a bush or something? 40 feet is a big drop especially for a small child.

Do parents even give a darn anymore? How about parents who are suppose to be responsible for their children and make sure they are not harmed? How about just watching your child, especially in this age. Why does have the Police give information how to keep a child safe at home? How about just common sense? The Government (Federal, State, Local) has to tell us how to do things. Are we that irresponsible that we can't even take care of everyday chores and responsibilities? Pretty sad
