A toddler escaped with just a broken jaw after falling from an open window on the third floor of an apartment block (Ed: no, not in New York - I think that's what they call 'flats' now...).
The 22-month-old boy landed on a ledge above a shop in Amhurst Road in Hackney, where he was seen crawling by passers-by who rescued him using a ladder.And who is at fault for this? Why, clearly, the architect of the building!
His grandmother said his mother had left him on his own as she got ready to go out. She added:
“The windows open out wide and the sill is low enough for a baby to climb up on. The whole place is unsafe.”Haven’t you ever heard of child-proof window locks and not leaving babies alone in rooms without these..?
