Weird. This same family had a another child fall from the same window on May 7, 2006. That child survived with brain injuries.

When will people learn to keep an eye on their kids and not leave open windows. At 4 years old that baby should have been taught to stay away from open windows.
God Bless to the family and all involved.

Wow, parents REALLY need to watch their children...if you aren't going to watch them, make sure your house is as child proof as possible. This holiday will be tough for this family for years to come. My thoughts are with them.

Coincidence?...I think not! If you have a child who previously fell out of a window, you do everything you can to make sure it doesn't happen again. I realize kids can get crazy and do some uncertain things, but twice...to the same family? I think CPS should look a little deeper into this situation.

I sincerely hope that charges are filed this time and the rest of their children are taken away. One incident may be written off as an accident, but to have it happen twice is unacceptable. They are obviously incapable of taking care of their kids.

I am confused about the other child falling. Is this the same parents? You think after it happening once, they would screw the dam window shut. Break it out if there is a fire... something.

I read the WZZM-13 website's report after making my first comment on here. How tragic that this little guy lost his life. I will still keep this family in my prayers. However, I belive alot of investigation needs to take place regarding this situation.

How can a 2nd child fall from the same window? You would think that mom and dad would fix that window so nobody else would fall out of it!!!!

Did I read this correctly that this happened before? Back in 2006 a 1 1/2 year old fell out of the same window? Was it the same child? Something does not sound right.

Prayers going out to the family involved. Very sad.

Was the window not fixed? I bet at least neglect charges will be filed against them this time.

Go and get a window guard for those of you who have dangerous openings in your windows. There's no need for this to ever happen.
