That boy survived because it was not time for him to die. God has something still left for that boy to do.

God often does not cooperate with our foolish plans. Life or death is not the choice of man. Some men ask for longer life and are denied. Others ask for death and also are denied. Each man has a set time. Even when you want to rush it. God often does not go along with your attempts. Sometimes we ask for more time and sometimes God will cooperate and extend our days. But i know one thing usually when we witness a miracle. Usually their is purpose there seen and unseen. Scott from philly do not blasheme. You cannot win. All you do is store up wrath for yourself.

Who pays for the hospitalization? Hopefully his family. God gives us a brain and hopes we use it. This was not a miracle. It was a foolish act from a child looking for a easy way out. It takes strength to endure hardships , taking our own life is crowardly

Sounds nice, but not a full definition. Some folks don't even attempt to take on the pain because they don't have the strenght to accept a challenge. Either due to lack of faith, courage, etc.

Strength isn't just handling the pain of a challenge. Its also taking on the challenge knowing that pain may follow. Some people would avoid such a situation.

'God' had nothing to do with him surviving or not. His survival is easily explained by what is reported by the doctors in the article.

Everytime you wake up it is a gift and miracle. When someone falls nine stories and lives that is undeniably a miracle. Once a fella survived a fall from a B-17 from 10,000ft without a parachute in germany during ww2. I guess that wasn't a miracle either. This fella lives because it wasn't his time. You remain alive because yours has not come as well.

If you have ever suffered from clinical depression, you would not be judging this poor boy as harshly as you are. I hope that he gets the help that he needs.
It was a miracle that he lived.

Why you people always worried about who pays for things. You act like money isn't printed and made of wood. Since when did paper and a govt promise become more important to you than someones life. Look in the mirror. Is money really more important to you than people. How pathetic you have let yourself become. Your jaded. You weren't born like that. Full up with sins you are. It isn't even your money. Tax money isn't yours anymore the moment the govt collects it. Don't believe me. Then go ask for your money and see how much you get.

I'm just glad he didn't land on anyone. Some botched suicides have resulted in the deaths of innocent people and the perpetrator surviving the attempt.

Such as jumping out of a window. As a general rule if you're at least six stories up you WILL die. Not might. WILL. This made the news because he did use a foolproof method.

I'm impressed that you're psychic and therefore able to tell whether he really wanted to die. Maybe you should have, you know, ALERTED THE AUTHORITIES since you knew what his intent was before he did anything.
