Winston the French bulldog fell from a six-story building in Manhattan's Lower East Side on Friday night. Fortunately, he only sustained minimal injuries and will be just fine. Emma Heinrich was walking Winston when he ran off, raced up the stairs of a building onto the roof through an open door, and then... jumped. "He managed to break his fall perfectly on top of (a) car’s closed sunroof," Heinrich wrote on Instagram. "He crashed through it and tumbled safely into the front seat." From CNN:
"I was told by the vet initially that despite not having broken any bones, X-rays showed significant bruising to his lungs," Heinrich said.
Due to the bruising, Winston had to stay in an oxygen chamber for 36 hours to make sure that he could breathe.
Now, Winston's home and is "doing absolutely amazing," she told CNN. "He is still a little bit stiff (as to be expected), but that is quickly fading and we are seeing him start to return to his regular playful self."

We now interrupt your regularly programmed negative news stories to bring you one with a miracle happy ending! *Winston is unenthused about being on the local news. He told me he won’t settle for anything less than @theellenshow moving forward.* . . Our Frenchie Winston got loose in the stairwell of our LES apartment building and managed to make it onto the roof. Trying to play a game of keepaway he dashed away from me and ran the length of the roof toward the front edge.
