(Newser) – A 2-year-old boy is alive after falling from a third-floor window in his family's Manhattan apartment early this morning—and it could all be thanks to a metal trash bin. The bin was directly under the window that Jayvin Cruz fell from, and it reportedly broke his fall before he hit the sidewalk. Authorities say the boy only suffered minor injuries in the fall; he was taken to the hospital with a few bumps and bruises.
