Diaper Saves Baby's Life

Diaper Saves Baby's Life

Never underestimate the power of disposable diapers. An absorbent nappy does more than keep a baby's bum dry and provide postpartum relief for a mother — one saved a life. A Brazilian boy fell from a third-story window, and the Pampers that normally cushion the tush got caught on a spike in the side of the apartment building.

Though the diaper opened after the 18-month-old hung from it, it did slow the speed at which he fell 30 feet. The babe survived and is reportedly in stable condition.
