The toddler's X-ray results were normal and the results of the CT scan of her brain revealed it was also normal.

The little girl who fell off a 12th floor apartment in Hanoi and was saved by a truck driver last Sunday was discharged from hospital on March 5.

Dr. Hoang Hai Duc, head of the Devision of Pediatric Orthopedics under the Hanoi-based National Children's Hospital, said a dislocated hip has been fixed and the little girl would have a checkup after two or three weeks to see if her hips have regained their full function.

"She did not have a fever, coughing, breathing difficulties and her urinary tract functions normally. Her hip has been relocated and placed in a cast. X-ray results were normal. The results of the CT scan of her brain revealed it was also normal," the doctor said.

"This is truly too big a joy for our family," the girl’s mother said, expressing her sincere thanks to the doctors for their treatment to her daughter.

On February 28, the little girl climbed out of the balcony of her apartment on the 12th-floor of the 60B Apartment Building in Thanh Xuan district.

She was fortunately survived after Nguyen Ngoc Manh, a 31-year-old truck driver who had parked nearby, clambered up a corrugated roof and caught the falling child.

Manh, who slightly injured his arms in the ordeal, said the incident has turned his life upside down.

His story made headlines in national and international media, turning him into a celebrity overnight. Many called him a hero to his discomfort.

"I don’t see myself as a hero. I just want to do good deed," he had said at the time.

The 31-year-old driver has received commendations and rewards from PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Hanoi leaders, and the wider public for his bravery and quick actions that saved the little girl.
