Baby who fell from Ras Al Khaimah building makes miraculous recovery


DUBAI – An Egyptian baby girl who fell from the window of the family’s apartment on the tenth floor of a building in Ras Al Khaimah is now out of coma and is continuing her recovery in hospital.

Doctors have called Leen Farghali’s case a miracle after she survived the fall and landed on the back windshield of a car parked outside the building during the February 17 incident.

Doctors said the car may have somehow saved her life.

Farghali, who is 19-months old, suffered severe fractures and head trauma after the incident and was rushed to Saqr Hospital in Rak for treatment before being transferred to the specialist hospital Tawam Hospital in Al Ain for further treatment.

Doctors said the baby has continued her miraculous recovery and is now out coma and is able to breathe without the need of a respirator.

Dr Nidal Al Hashaykeh, head of the pediatric intensive care unit at Tawam Hospital, said Farghali is responding well to treatment.

“She has recovered from her coma and was removed from the artificial respirator, but still needs more time to complete her treatment and rehabilitation,” Al Hashaykeh said.
