MINNEAPOLIS (AP) A young boy dubbed "the miracle baby" remains in critical condition but is expected to survive after falling 11 stories from a Minneapolis high-rise.

Fifteen-month-old Musa Dayib suffered a broken spine and ribs as well as a concussion and a punctured lung. Musa's relatives believe he slipped through the balcony's railing Sunday evening.

Hennepin County Medical Center spokeswoman Christine Hill says the boy was in critical but stable condition Wednesday.

Dr. Tina Slusher of the hospital's pediatric intensive care unit tells the Star Tribune that Musa landed on a small patch of mulch. Slusher says "it's a real gift from God" that the boy survived.
