I agree...can we add ignorant, careless, thoughtless to the list? Yes, accidents happen, but that was clearly a disaster waiting to happen and guess what...it did. I just pray the children will survive this with no ill effects.

I honestly think as a landlord it should be state law to make sure all houses and apt's have proper safety measures if the tenants don't comply call the police yourself. Or nail them on the windows yourself,also why didn't the person who called the police do more,and where was the mother??? Accidents happen all the time but to fall out of the window is unexecusable.God Bless

they should of put some kind of bar or a baby gate up
if she does get it for neglet and gets off shame on her if she ever puts those kids at risk again she is going to be in deep doodoo
I put latch hooks on my windows so my cat don't fall out he is going to unlatch them but a child would baby gate or something to let fresh air in and nothing out

Who are you people to judge???? Are ANY of you with out sin??? I don't think so. Do any of you know the mother? She could have been the best parent in the world and all you guys can do is sit your fat arses in front of your computer saying how bad of a person she is. And if you want to know, no I don't know her, but in the same I'm not going to slander her here in this fourm. All that should really matter to you judgemental a holes is the fact that the children are safe! I mean come fricken on people. "oh shes a bad mom" "Oh how lazy she must be" WTF What if it was you in her shoes? Would you be so quick to make statements like that then? You people make me sick. Worry about your own, don't judge!

Ok Smart Fart [thanks Lucy for that one!]
no, we do not know the mother; BUT we do KNOW the childrens' ages AND that the Landlord had ORDERED, SEVERAL TIMES, that they PUT THE SCREENS BACK IN THE WINDOW; Thus, we KNOW that this was not a 'turned my back for a second and they pushed the screen out'

Stick that in your pipe and smoke it...Smart Fart

"Salvador Juarez, the building's landlord said he warned the tenants to put the screen back in the window. He also said the children and their mother were not tenants of his, and he's unsure of the relationship."

So rval that would mean that they didn't live there so how would they know about the screens? Think on that for a minute or two sweetums.:)

Let me guess, it was their first time there? Did they NOT have the knowledge that the screens weren't there?? Didn't someone also comment that people sat in the window all the time??

didn't even need a minute or two did I, honeybun?

I believe as a parent that you are responsable for your children. If you live in a second story apartment or house its you as a parent to make sure your children are safe. And it makes it worse when the landlord had ordered several times to put the screens back in and the parents ignore talk about stupid. And to Max Champlin as a parent my childrens safety was first priority raising 3 children as single mom. Also with this happening so OFTEN AND IN THE NEWS, you would think that it would cross her mind to do something like putting the screens in. And as far as me sitting here on my fat ares, you had to sit on your ares to type too.

19? And she has two kids?
I'm sure the taxpayers are paying for her...
Tie her tubes.
She apparently should not a parent.

Correction 19 and 3 kids.. and for you Max Champlin i do know Audra she so happens to be my cousin and no she isnt the best mother in the world.. i know you shouldnt have kids either. What parent lets their kids live in a nasty place anyways collecting money off the state and letting her childen hang out the window..?? I KNOW a DECENT parent doesnt do that.. kids dont need to be having kids if they cant support them nd besides they have 2 diff dads and one of the fathers got caught and is sent to Mexico.. so her situation is all messed up.

i just want my baby cousin's to all have the same home
God Bless them

I, for one, am appalled by this tragedy. I hope that the parent is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Viva Nancy Grace!!!!!!!!

i am the mother of the kids and i know you are not of any relation to me so there for you truly do not know me nor my business i do not have family in texas and all of you that want to talk badly of me maybe you should get a copy of the police report before you be so quick to judge me . no im not perfect and we all make mistakes and ive payed dearly for turning my back from my children for even 2 seconds but i bet the news didnt tell you that there was 2 adults in the room with my children or that i was one room away in the kitchen or even that the windows were taller than my chilren and no i did not live there permantly but the landlord knew me and my chilren and allowed us to be there and he never told anyone anything about screens if you would have looked at that place around the time of this accident there were no screens on any of the apt. and this man is a piece of shit and was trying to cover his own self so you may think and say what you like but dont ever say this could not happen to you bedcause it could happen to anyone. oh and not that any of you truly care but my my chilren are healthy and well and home with me so if im such a bad person then why do i have them you all care so much about me but not a damn about the kids and they are the most important thing so enjoy your gossip im done reading your remarks because i know who i am and the truth and have nothing to prove to any of you.

Whoopsy, I guess the window wasn't labled properly, it's definitly the windows fault.

We need a law to ban windows, as the nazi anti smokers like.
