Talk about a lucky day.

Musa Dayib, 15 months, is being called a "miracle baby" after he fell 11-stories from an apartment balcony in Minneapolis, Minn. and survived.

According to the Minneapolis Tribune, The tiny tot's father, Guled Ahmed, was playing with his two children in the living room of the apartment when he went to the kitchen. Less than a minute later, his 3-year-old daughter ran up to him and said "the baby fell."

Guled then looked over the balcony railing and saw his son lying on the ground 11 stories below. He grabbed his daughter and ran down 11 flights of stairs to get to him as quickly as possible.

Surprisingly, the baby was crying and conscious when security guard Larry Ross ran over to the boy as his father was making his way down. According to Larry, the baby landed on a patch of "mulch-covered ground," and just missed the sidewalk and a steel box that contained electric equipment.

The little guy is in critical but stable condition at Hennepin County Medical Center, where doctors are calling him "the miracle baby." He has severe injuries, including fractures and a concussion, but he is alive and recovering.

It's not clear how the baby fell from the balcony, but family members believe the toddler slipped through the balcony's railings. Baby Emily Goes Home After Being Born at 23 Weeks in Florida
