|The boy fell seven stories to the poll deck of the DoubleTree.|
Most of the deck is covered in concrete and would have almost certainly meant doom or serious injury. Luckily, according to WSVN, the boy hit the top of a palm tree first, bounced into another tree and then hit the dirt below and managed to survive the seven story free fall.
Amazingly he should be fine, but was transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital.
