The girl fell from a building in southwest China’s Chonqing City on April 2and crashed through an awning before hitting the ground, the Chongqing Daily reported.

Not long after she hits the ground, the girl gets up and walks away.

Her name was not given in the report.

Girl Survives Fall

At 1:10 p.m., a young girl wearing a red coat fell out of the window from the 26th floor of her condo residence. Footage shows the girl falling straight down, with her back facing the ground and hands above her.

The next moment, she smashes through a light green awning in the neighborhood parking lot. Her body catches on a metal crossbar that supported the awning, and she rolls over as the bar appears to break her fall.

She then hits the ground. Her fall creates a large hole in the plastic awning.

She nearly rolls into the parked motorcycles, and just moments after the impact, she begins to stand up.

Within moments, she is on her feet, and walks away from the scene.

The property owner told the outlet that the girl’s family would often go out and leave the girl home alone with the doors locked while she napped. It is unclear if the girl was home alone at the time of the fall.
