“A 15-year-old New Zealand boy has survived with minor injuries after falling 16-storeys from the balcony of his family’s apartment onto a concrete floor, New Zealand media reported on Monday.

 
The teenager was described as in a stable condition in an Auckland hospital with a broken wrist, broken rib, gashed leg and internal injuries, the New Zealand Herald reported.

If I trip over my coffee table, I will probably end up in critical condition. But young people are a lot more resilient, and they sometimes survive incredible injuries.
 
A lady who works in the same building as the hapless youth exclaimed:God must have been with him. He’s got an angel looking after him. If God cares about me, I hope he hasn’t assigned a clueless angel to watch over me. If I fell and broke my wrist, a rib and suffered internal injuries, I would be cursing my Guardian Angel.
 
I’m sure the boy isn’t thinking “I’m glad God was looking after me”, as he winces in pain on a hospital bed.
