Ohio boy survives 7-story fall

UPI News Service, 10/04/2005 

An Ohio boy survived a seven-story fall from his Akron apartment building.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Zachary Frye landed in a bed of mulch, which may have saved his life. He suffered collapsed lung and bruises to his kidneys but no broken bones.

"This is truly an amazing story of survival for this small boy who fell from this great distance," said Dr. David Andrews, chairman of the department of surgery at Akron Children's Hospital.

Andrews told the Plain Dealer that children are better able to survive long falls because their bones are more flexible.

Zachary's mother, Denise Frye, said that she heard a noise from her son's room and went in to find the screen pushed out and her son missing. At a news conference, she said that when she visited Zachary in the hospital he told her he had "done something bad," pushing on the screen, which she had warned him about.

Frye said she is thinking about moving to a lower floor.
