http://shine.yahoo.com When parents think about child proofing their homes, they're usually focused on keeping cabinets locked and storing sharp objects or dangerous chemicals out of reach. So when Jessica Hayes of Aurora, Colorado, was spring cleaning recently, she says says that she didn't think of the potential for danger when she pushed her couch out of the way, against the wall and under a window in her third-story apartment. While she was shampooing the carpets and her mom was helping out in the kitchen, her 4-year-old son, Dylan, climbed up on the couch to chat with a downstairs neighbor through the window. As he leaned against the flimsy screen, it gave way and he fell three stories, landing on the rock-covered ground below. He spent about 20 hours in the hospital, wearing a neck brace as a precaution, but doctors released him, saying he had barely a scratch on him.

He's not even traumatized by the event, though he does caution other kids to "not open windows." His mom, on the other hand, was so shaken up by the event that she's moved out of the third-floor apartment and is living with a relative. says that she feels "beyond lucky" that Dylan survived the 30-plus-foot fall. "There had to have been angels watching over him," his grandmother, Kelli Hayes, agreed.

Another similar case: Last month in Bahia Blanca (Argentina), the driver of a car ran over two teenagers and miraculously they emerged unscathed. According to the grandmother of one of them "Thank God they are fine. A little sore and impressed, but they are well. They are of a smaller city, Trelew, and came to walk here. When they crossed the traffic light it was red, possibly it changed when they were crossing. God put his hand and nothing happened. So you have to believe that there is something greater than ourselves," she told reporters.

A Colorado (USA) mother said her 4-year-old son survived a three-story fall with only minor injuries, landing on his feet. Jessica Hayes of Aurora said her son, Dylan, climbed atop her couch to talk to her downstairs neighbors through the window and fell through the screen. "I was terrified," she said. "I didn't know what I was going to see when I got down to the ground floor." However, the mother said she was shocked and relieved to discover Dylan had landed on his feet on the rocks below. "I feel beyond lucky. There must have been something watching over Dylan that day," she said. As Argentine teenagers who suffered no damage despite having been run over by a car, and many other cases in the world, this story shows that life and death are not dependent on us. 


It is stated, māre krishna rākhe ke, rākhe krishna māre ke:  If Krishna protects someone, no one can kill him, and if Krishna wants to kill someone, no one can save him. ... 
Lord Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is omnipotent, and if He wants to kill someone, no one can save that person. Similarly, if He wants to save someone, no one can kill him. 
(Śrīla A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda - “Śrīmad Bhāgavatam” 11.1.4 - “Krishna Book” - Chapter 72 - Bhaktivedanta VedaBase)

“Whatever is done by the Lord is for good,” the prime minister told the King, “If Hari protects, nobody can kill him and if Hari wants to kill then nobody can protect him,” he added.
