NEW YORK (AP) - 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.
