(Newser) – Well played, stuffed cow. Authorities in Chelsea, Mass., say the big toy may have saved his toddler buddy from serious harm or worse. As the Boston Globe reports, 2-year-old Luis Eduardo Gomez was bouncing on his bed Wednesday afternoon when he bounced clear out of his second-story bedroom window. Luckily, he was still clutching the animal, which measures about 2 feet long, and it took the brunt of the impact.

“He fell about 16 feet onto concrete," says deputy fire chief John Quatieri. "He could easily have broken bones or been very seriously injured." Chelsea Police Chief Brian Kyes tweeted a photo of the cow, per Fox News. Luis was shaken up and has some minor cuts and bruises but is otherwise fine. The family moved to the US five months ago from Guatemala, and the boy's uncle says Luis carries the cow with him everywhere.
