Now imagine seeing your child slipping through a second story window and slamming face-first into the ground. If you think that’s too much, then you can probably not handle watching the CCTV footage below.

The baby, identified as Helena Beatrice Nascimento from Brazil, lays there for a few minutes before gingerly gets on all fours and attempts to stand.
Then passers by rushes to her side and begins to comfort her. Soon thereafter, the footage shows the toddler bolts out of their house to check on her baby.
According to reports the second floor window from which the the baby fell did not have any bars, and so when Helena Beatrice Nascimento rolled over in her sleep there was no barriers to catch her.
Fortunately, telephone lines broke her fall. Baby Helena was then rushed to the nearest hospital and after a thorough check-up at a nearby hospital, the doctors found no blunt traumas, broken bones, nor internal bleeding, only minor cuts and bruises.
