Fortunately, this story has a happy ending but it doesn't change the fact that a 16-month old girl slipped and fell from the balcony of the Econolodge in Orlando, one of the biggest Econolodges in the world and also the same miserable property that got poor marks during the Undercover Boss episode back in September.

Miraculously, the toddler was saved by a British tourist who noticed the baby hanging from the fourth-floor railing and ran to catch her before she hit the ground. The girl hit a third-floor railing on the way down but didn't even suffer a bruise or scratch and was even described as happy afterward.

Your Dorky Road Trip Mix Could Win You Some Free Stuff

July 22, 2009 at 12:17 PM | by | ()

Don't lie. You totally make dorky road trip mixes whenever you have to drive long distances. Whether it's your iPod playlist or on a CD, don't even pretend like you dont put "Hit the Road, Jack" and "Born to be Wild" and "Life is a Highway" into the rotation, even if you're trying to keep it cool with Black-Eyed Peas or Beyonce or whatever the kids are listening to these days. You have your road trip jamz. It's okay to admit it; we all do.

And now that nerdy mix might be winning you some free stuff: Starting July 24th and running through August 27th, you can enter to win some cool stuff from Econolodge. Going to Econolodge.com and voting for your favorite road trip jam enters you into the Econo Lodge Travelin’ Tunes Sweepstakes (yes, we know, it's not the Four Seasons but you don't do your road trips in Ferrari's, do you?) for the chance to win "the ultimate music lovers prize": a trip to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame or the Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum, which includes roundtrip airfare, $1,000 of spending money, and accommodations for three nights at an Econo Lodge hotel.

If you're not usually the lucky type who wins grand prizes, don't stress: five entries will be chosen every week, and they'll each win a $25 music gift card. So you can download your other embarrassing road trip jams. Like "Little Red Corvette" and stuff — the promo starts Friday.
