Luckily he was holding on to a large stuffed cow at the time that ended up cushioning him from the worst of the impact.

"He was pretty lucky," said his mother. "He had a teddy bear twice his size so that saved his life."

Eduardo is back home now after a brief stay in the hospital, and he has been reunited with that stuffed cow.

"It broke his fall so the injuries are minor," said an official.
