New York: A three-year-old boy in the US, who was pretending to be Spider-Man, miraculously survived death after tumbling out of a third-floor apartment window.

The boy was playing superheroes at home with a sibling on Monday night when the playtime went horribly wrong and he ended up in the hospital in Anaheim, California.

Reports suggest he was jumping on a bed when he knocked off a screen and tumbled out the window.

However, his fall was miraculously broken by bushes and dirt on the ground, `New York Daily News` reported.

His parents found him bleeding from the head but still conscious.

The boy was rushed to a hospital, where doctors said he had suffered only "minor" injuries.

Anaheim police Seargent Wayne Alonso said it was a warning about kids having access to windows.

"You never want to have anything up against a wall that a kid could climb on to have access to a window," Alonso told City News Service.
