He slipped through the gap in the grilles while playing in the balcony of his flat at Krishna Park in Sector 15.

"I was on a business tour while my wife was at home at the time of the incident. She was told by someone on the ground floor that our boy had fallen down," said Mishra.

Ashish may have been lucky due to his light weight frame, which was cushioned by localised winds, which reduced his acceleration towards the ground from that great height, felt doctors at the hospital.
