June 22 (UPI) -- A 2-year-old Massachusetts boy's fall out of a second story window may have been much scarier had the toddler not been clutching a large, stuffed cow, police said.

The boy was jumping on his bed in Chelsea on Wednesday afternoon when he accidentally fell out of a window, the Boston Globe reported. The boy dropped about 16 feet onto concrete, but landed on the large, stuffed cow he was holding at the time.


Chelsea's Deputy Fire Chief, John Quatieri, told the Globe that the boy "could easily have broken bones or been very seriously injured."

The boy was hospitalized overnight, but only to keep him monitored, said Chelsea Police Chief Brian Kyes on Twitter.

Kyes said on Twitter early Thursday the boy was "doing fine."
