Neil Shanahan, aged two and a half,
has made an astonishing recovery
just five weeks after he fell to the first floor of the Strand Hotel from its
sixth-floor rooftop balcony, the Irish Mirror reports.
His mother Martina, speaking for the first time since her little boy’s
dramatic fall, said she believed he
was saved in a series of miracles.
With tears welling in her eyes, Neil’s
overjoyed mother said:
“I believe it was a miracle, I believe I got a dig out, I really do,”
“He spent 70 hours in a critical condition, I’m just so delighted he’s home.I’m just so delighted I got my boy back. He’s my life".
Neil had been attending a coffee morning in the Strand Hotel with his family when he ventured into a lift that took him to the sixth floor.
Somehow he managed to get from
the lift to the rooftop balcony before falling to the ground.
One eye witness described seeing
him dangling off the large letters that spell out the hotel’s name, before he lost his grip.
