Are you kidding me? Two children in one family fall from the same window. Did any body notice the parents were lousy at being parents? Apparently not. How unbelievably awful.

We pray for your family and We pray the CPS Vultures will not rip your family apart. Accidents happen. When God Calls you home you don't don't get to say no.

where were the partents, not watching the kids. I cann't believe that someone could have this happen a 2nd time. Charges should be filed. and other child need to be put in a safe place. This is not it......... Can anyone else see this?

At this point, all you can do is to ask "what is wrong with people"

If this happened once, apparently these parents are really short a full deck if it happened again with the same window. Child Protective Services should really take a good look at this and perhaps take the children away for awhile till this situation is resolved.

Tragic. I hope authorities are not quick to place blame. It sounds like a freak accident. This should be a wake-up call to others to be more watchful of children during these warm spring days.

Hmmmm....two kids out the same window? One with catastrophic medical problems. Sounds odd. I'm keeping an eye on this one.

First of all, he fell out of the living room window, not the bedroom window. Second, please dont be rude and judge this family so harshly. We all make mistakes and accidents happen. This family is grieving for thier child. Show some respect. Pray for them.

Of course it was preventable. Bars on the windows would have solved the problem. You would think that they would have learned the first time. Actually, if they just looked at the situation when they moved in, they should have known it was a possibility. I don't know if it is a rented house or their own home, but either way, the windows should have been fixed somehow. It wouldn't take a rocket scientist to do it either.
