A toddler falling from an apartment window in California was saved by the actions of a quick thinking couple.

Konrad and Jennifer Lightner happened to be moving a mattress Sunday in Los Angeles suburb Burbank when they noticed the boy about to fall from a three story window, police told sister station KTLA.

“We were telling him to stay inside and to get his parents,” Konrad said. “Once we saw that his leg was going over the window, Jenni called the police.”

The couple was able to position the mattress to break the three-year-old boy’s fall.

The boy didn’t suffer any major injuries, but was taken to the hospital for observation, KTLA reports.

“I’ll never be able to repay them for what they’ve done for us,” mom, Morgane Milligan said.
