since this has now happened TWICE the parents should be charged with something. Why didn't they make sure that this would never happen again!!! Time to have CPS take action on this matter.

My heart and prayers go out to this family. However, I can't help but wonder if these kids are really falling out the window or is someone helping them out the window? Too strange that it has happened to two children in 3 years.

Something is seriously wrong with this picture. If two children have fallen to their deaths while in the care of these parents, then they need to be held accountable for not protecting them. There are simple ways to prevent such accidents.

Wow. I think if my child fell out of a window I would either modify it so it wouldn't happen again or board it up until they were older. How could this happen twice???

Two children from the same family? A real tradgety. Is it a coincidence or something much worse? Let's hope the social services do their job right.

I wonder if this is the same family still that lived here in 06 when the One and a half yr. old fell? That could be the same child in that case.

Sounds like wonderful parents. Congratulations on killing your child. Here's your complimentary pass to prison.

I hope the state will remove all the children from these parents. Obviously, if it's happened before, these parents are unfit.

This is too bad especially since they had a warning with the other toddler back in 2006

My condolences to the family, as they must be absolutely devestated. But you think one would learn from past mistakes.

Geez, is there a jealous older sibling or something that is "helping" their little siblings to "fall" out the window?

Was the window not fixed? I bet at least neglect charges will be filed against them this time.
The window was fixed the first time this happened to the first little boy. That's what the news said anyway.
