New York cat survives 20-story fall from apartment

A New York cat used up at least one of his nine lives after surviving a 20-story fall.

Gloucester, known as G to his friends, plunged from an apartment window on the Fourth of July. He's bruised, banged up and a little wobbly, but he has no breaks.

He crash-landed on the pavement.

The vet says G was actually lucky to fall from so high because that gave him time to right himself and get ready to land.

A woman walking her dog was able to get G help.
