Child crashes into car

A baby falls out of a window, but her fall was mercifully broken by one of those house-crashing cars. Who knows, maybe the autos just hate the houses and really like the people in them.

Annayh Aguilar was in an upstairs bedroom about 10:30 a.m. with two other young children when she leaned against the screen of an open window, relatives said.

The screen popped out and the toddler tumbled out the window, falling onto the hood of a car parked below.

“The car broke her fall,” said her grandfather, Edmond Lizcano, 69, who was sweeping the driveway when his granddaughter fell.

“I was right out here when, all of a sudden, the baby came falling down,” he said. “We're really fortunate that car was parked there.”

(from Robert Crowe of the Express-News)

Bonus strangeness: The family lives on Catfish Lane.

And this story reminds me of the "Shaving Cream" song, which, if I remember correctly, has this verse:

My baby fell out of the window.
You'd think that her head would have split.
But good luck was with her that morning;
She fell in a big pile of shhhhhhh -- aving cream,
Be nice and clean,
Shave every day and you'll always look keen.

Ah, the classics.

I'm glad the car was there (probably contemplating a house crashing, for sure) to break the fall of the flying child. And glad said child is okay.

Depending on the model of the car, and given the average size (girth) of San Antonio babies these days, I'm sure the hood took a severe pummeling. That's some gratitude.
