If you’re reading this blog you are (probably) still alive, which means God prevented your hasty demise when you were an infant.

The Lord spends a lot of his time watching over babies because they spend a lot of their time trying to find ways to get themselves killed :

French media are describing as a “miracle” the unscathed survival of an 18-month-old girl who fell from a sixth-floor apartment.

The girl was left unattended by her parents when she somehow fell, then bounced off the awning of a cafe below.

She had a further stroke of luck when a passing doctor saw her fall and caught her before she hit the ground, witnesses were quoted as saying.

The doctor found no injuries but she was taken to hospital for a check-up.

[ . . . ]

The man who caught the girl was walking by with his wife and son when the boy spotted the girl falling.

Another witness told Le Figaro that the doctor positioned himself by the awning and caught the girl in his arms after she bounced off it.
