  Eutychus 
  fortunate,  (Acts  20:9-12),  a  young  man  of  Troas  who  fell  through 
  drowsiness  from  the  open  window  of  the  third  floor  of  the  house 
  where  Paul  was  preaching,  and  was  "taken  up  dead."  The 
  lattice-work  of  the  window  being  open  to  admit  the  air,  the  lad 
  fell  out  and  down  to  the  court  below.  Paul  restored  him  to  life 
  again  (Comp.  1  Kings  17:21;  2  Kings  4:34.)
