Girl survives 45-foot fall
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- A 12-year-old girl was catapulted through a window in the family's SUV during a two-vehicle crash, and survived a 45-foot fall from a freeway overpass.
Doctors said Amanda Young -- who is 4 feet, 3 inches tall and weighs 65 pounds -- had to have her spleen removed, and suffered a broken leg and a fractured eye socket after she was tossed from her mother's sport utility vehicle. She was recovering Monday in the pediatric intensive care unit at Tampa General Hospital.
"I think almighty God saved her," said the girl's mother, Nancy Young. "What else would you think?"
"I see God's hand lowering her to the ground," added the girl's aunt, Peggy Moss.
