Those Minions from the Despicable Me series have really made a name for themselves. Now, after a career of being bad, they are saving lives of the innocent.

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.

Five year old girl managed to fall out of window. I hope we can do something about that to make sure that isn’t likely to happen again. Yikes. But, her love for her Minion saved her life, apparently.
