A toddler who crawled out a third-floor window during his family's Thanksgiving festivities and fell onto a store roof not only survived — he didn't even break a bone.

Brandon Priebe said his 14-month-old son, Bradley, tumbled from a bedroom window in his aunt's Brooklyn apartment on Thursday. His relatives said they thought the window was closed.

Bradley fell about 20 feet onto the roof of a music store next door, police said. Priebe told police that his son wasn't seriously injured in the fall. The boy was in stable condition later Thursday at a local hospital, where no update on his condition was available early Friday.

"It's a miracle," said Anna Priebe, the boy's mother.
