A New York City toddler who fell from a third-floor window onto a store roof is not only alive today, he doesn't even have a broken bone.

The boy's father says his son tumbled from a bedroom window in his aunt's apartment yesterday. His relatives said they thought the window was closed.

According to police, the 14-month-old old dropped about 20 feet onto the roof of a music store next door. The father says the toddler wasn't seriously injured in the fall.

The boy was in stable condition at a local hospital last night.

The boy's mother calls the survival tale "a miracle."
