BURBANK, Cal. (CNN) – A couple’s quick thinking may have saved a child’s life.

The two were moving out of their Burbank, California, apartment when they saw a toddler dangling from a window.  The couple quickly put their mattress and box spring under the window.

According to KABC in Los Angeles, the husband, Konrad Lightner, managed to break the child’s fall then put him on the mattress for safe-keeping.

The station reports the 3-year-old was taken to the hospital but did not have any major injuries.

The boy’s parents were unaware of what had happened but were grateful, the Lightners said.
