Now, if you find yourself falling from a great height and you have only a few seconds to decide which part of you should strike the concrete first, your back is the third-worst option, behind "head" and "groin." But Simoes was thinking only of her child, even as her spine detonated against the pavement.
Cameron came away from the ordeal completely unharmed, but his mother was told that she would never walk again. This story has a happy ending, though, because Simoes is walking again after extensive surgery paid for in part by a successful GoFundMe campaign. And she says that she would do it again, too, although we sincerely hope she means "only if absolutely necessary," rather than, you know, for shits and giggles.
