In Dubai, in 2012, six-year old Dunia Reda, was living on the 6th floor of a high-rise apartment block with her family. Late one night when she should have been asleep, the youngster got out of bed to watch older children playing in the street far below. But little Dunia wasn’t content to just to watch! She also wanted to chat to the children too, some of who she knew, so she unlocked the window to call down to them. Unfortunately in her excitement to say ‘hi,’ to her friends, she leaned over too far. The next moment to her horror she found herself tumbling out, and plummeting towards the hard concrete below. But instead of a tragic outcome came a miracle!
A report in the Gulf News, quoted Dunia as saying that she believes that she was 'saved by angel who broke her fall'.
Dunia said: "I was falling fast at first, and very scared, but then I felt the fall slow, and someone held me like I was a baby. I didn't drop as hard as I thought I would."
Miraculously Dunia was still conscious after hitting the ground, and was rushed to hospital. Although she had several injuries, none where live-threatening and she went on to make a full recovery. She said at the time, that she did not see "who saved her" but added: "it must have been an angel".
Her father Reda agreed: "I believe her, it was divine mercy. It was her Guardian Angel. She keeps telling me about it, she is very excited."
