Dog survives 15-story fall

Boston terrier suffers broken pelvis, 5 broken ribs

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – They say cats have nine lives, but one Boston terrier is living proof that dogs have at least two.

Sam is 13 years old and has quite the story of survival. Sam's owner says he either jumped or fell off a 15th-story balcony.

Miraculously, the wind carried Sam into a hot tub, softening his landing.

Sam still suffered a broken pelvis and five broken ribs but has since made a full recovery. 

His owner says Sam is partially blind, and the fall may have been the result of him becoming disoriented.
