They're movie stars, adorable and now the Minions can add lifesavers to their resume.

The Colorado Springs police department is crediting a young girl's stuffed Minion toy with cushioning her fall from a 3-story window.

The 5-year-old fell out of the window while playing in her bedroom at 8:30 p.m. on Thursday – and was clutching her Minion when the accident happened. Having her cushy toy in her hands helped keep the girl's injuries to a minimum, leaving her with just a broken arm.

"Fortunately, when the child fell out of the window, she continued holding on to a stuffed Minion teddy bear that is believed to have cushioned her fall," police said. "The child was transported to a hospital and treated for a broken arm and later released."

Superman, it looks like you have some competition.
