SPOKANE — A toddler who jumped on a bed and bounced out a second-story window was saved Friday by his mother, who caught his foot and lowered him safely to his grandmother who was on the porch below, police said.
The mother was just out of the shower when she saw the 14-month-old jumping on the bed trip on a pillow and fly out the half-open window, police spokeswoman Monique Cotton said.
The mother smashed through the window and caught him by a foot as his head bounced on a small roof overhanging the front porch.
The momentum took them both out the window to the porch overhang. The mother was able to lower the baby to the grandmother just as his shoe came off in her hand, police said.

The grandmother caught the baby before the mother fell into some bushes. She was taken to a hospital for treatment of cuts and a shoulder injury, Cotton said.
The baby also was taken to the hospital with grandma to be checked out.
“The baby is going to be fine,” Cotton said.
