Disposable diaper saves toddler's life

Some people claim that cloth diapers are safest for babies, but there's one family in Brazil that thinks a disposable diaper can be a lifesaver -- literally. Eighteen-month-old Caua Felipe Massaneiro fell thirty feet from a window in his family's third floor apartment and lived to talk about it thanks to his diaper.
The boy fell but instead of hitting the ground directly, his diaper got caught on a security spike embedded in the concrete wall that surrounds his apartment building. Caua hung there for a moment and then "the diaper opened and the baby fell to the ground, but at a much slower speed," said one police officer. "The diaper obviously lessened the impact of the fall and saved the baby's life."
Caua was taken to the hospital to be treated for minor fractures, but is doing well and is in stable condition. It is unclear at this time whether or not the diaper was in need of changing.
