In what can only be described as nothing short of a miracle, a pair of 4-year-old twin girls survived a 17-story fall over the weekend in South China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, according to state-mouthpiece Global Times.

The youngsters reportedly fell out of their parents’ 17th floor apartment, which is located in the prefecture-level city of Laibin, through an unlocked window. Luckily, the kids’ falls were broken by foliage on the ground that cushioned their landings.

Footage from the scene shows people comforting one of the twins, who is sitting on the ground surrounded by plants.

“I found the girl had no obvious trauma, but her face was pale,” a police officer who responded to the incident told Sina Video on Sunday, according to Global Times.

Both girls were transported to hospital, where they were diagnosed with non-life-threatening femoral fractures. Phew!
