A 1-year-old girl fell four stories from her Queens apartment last night - and miraculously survived when she bounced off two balls left in a backyard stairwell.

Cindy Riveros tumbled at 6:03 p.m. from the third-story bedroom window of 134-36 57th St. in Flushing.

There were no guards on the window, police said.

A neighbor told The Post the child fell one story below ground level, onto a landing in the back yard that leads to the basement - and where a couple of big, soft rubber balls had been left.

The balls appeared to have broken or cushioned little Cindy's fall, the neighbor said.

Normally, we criticize bouncy balls around here, but for once, let us all thank God for them!!!
