NEW YORK — A cat named Gizmo has only minor injuries after a 12-story fall at a Manhattan apartment building.
Owner Samuel Jacobs says Gizmo fell off his penthouse terrace on Tuesday. He crashed onto a third-floor landing and became wedged between a skylight and a wall.
Jacobs says he didn't see Gizmo slip through the door to the terrace — but that's what must have happened.
Jacobs says he looked down and started yelling: "Gizmo! Gizmo! Gizmo!"
He had to climb out a neighbor's window to rescue his cat.
Jacobs says the gray and black cat was "freaked out." He rushed his pet to a vet, fearing massive internal injuries.
The diagnosis: scratches and a broken tooth.
