    Police in Colorado say a stuffed toy helped save a 5-year-old girl's life after she fell out of a third-story apartment window.

    The girl broke her arm, but Colorado Springs police say she held on to the toy and it cushioned her fall Thursday night.

    Police said the girl was playing in her room when she fell backward out her bedroom window. She dropped about three stories to the ground.

    The girl was treated and released, and authorities ruled the fall accidental.

    The toy was a Minion, small, yellow creatures popularized by the animated film "Despicable Me."
