BURBANK, Calif. (AP) — A 3-year-old boy who fell out of a third-story window in Burbank was saved by a quick-acting couple who threw a mattress out to break his fall.

KABC-TV reports Konrad Lightner and his wife, Jennifer, were moving out of their apartment Sunday when they noticed the toddler and his sister throwing their toys out the window.

When they saw the little boy throw his leg over the window sill, Konrad rushed to put the mattress down. He was able to break the child's fall, placing him onto the mattress.

The toddler was taken to a local hospital for evaluation, but he did not suffer any major injuries.

A neighbor rushed to get the boy's parents, who were unaware of what happened but grateful for the rescue.

Yay to the fast acting couple. Ney to the parents. There should have been a lock on the windows.
