Question Baby Takes a Fall

How could a baby fall out of a twenty-story building onto the ground and live?

Hint: It does not matter what the baby lands on, and it has nothing to do with luck.



EDIT: You may have noticed this thread was closed as soon as it was entered. That was not intended to limit your input or enjoyment in any way. On the contrary, your participation is most welcome. The action was taken to prevent eager Peeps from going into some search engine, finding the answer, and posting it, as happened on several occasions in the past. (Of course I harvest a lot of this material from other sources. You didn’t think I create it all myself, did you? I’m good, but I’m not that good!) Regrettably, that also means that folks who legitimately work out their own answers, and would like to post them, don’t get to display their prowess, but I’m afraid that can’t be helped. I’ll open the thread in a couple of days, when Peeps have had an opportunity to try their hand at a solution, and you can post away then. The official answer will come a bit after that. I appreciate your patience and understanding, and hope you enjoy the exercise.

You're too quick for me, Brent. I always close the thread as soon as it's opened, to give folks a chance to try the test. But this time, you responded before I could close the thread. You're a quick guy, but let's give people a chance to play along. It will open up in a day or two, and you may post your reply then. Thanks for your understanding.

Maybe the baby falls out of a first floor window? After all, you didn't say the baby fell from the TOP of the 20 story building.

You're too good for me, Eileen. Hopefully I can come up with something to stump you. Try the Case of the Green Pen.

I was thinking that the baby fell out of the 20th story but had a parachute on (why, I don't know). But the official answer is better.

LOL! Good one, JG!

Bumper...I'm really not very good at these, so I take great joy when I get one right! I'll go try the one you suggested!
