One month ago an 11-story fall from a Minneapolis high rise put a toddler in the hospital.

Now, 15-month-old Musa Dayib is making an amazing recovery after the fall and landing on a soft patch at Riverside Plaza. The toddler went out on the balcony after his sister opened the sliding door. He slipped through the railing.

Many are calling his survival a miracle.

We caught up with his family at a community benefit Thursday at the Brian Coyle Center.

The little boy is now out of a cast. His mother says he's back to his old self - a playful toddler.

If you'd like to help the family with medical costs you can donate to any Wells Fargo or Associated Bank.
