AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – An Aurora 4-year-old is alive after falling out of a third-story apartment window and amazingly landing on his feet.

Dylan’s mother, Jessica Hayes, has a warning for parents with young children.

“I fall … really, really far,” Dylan told CBS4’s Evrod Cassimy.

“I was terrified,” Jessica said. “I didn’t know what I was going to see when I got down to the ground floor.”

Jessica was shampooing her carpets when the fall happened. She had moved her couch to the wall when Dylan climbed on it to talk through the window to his downstairs neighbors.

“I heard a crash, and the next thing I know I just saw a blur,” neighbor Pat Roush said.

“My mom was cleaning our fridge out, and all of a sudden I hear her screaming, ‘Dylan just went out the window!’ ” Jessica said.
