Niece fell from 3rd story window
November 21, 2012 at 2:40 AM

Hey moms,

My 3 year old niece opend and fell through the screen of a 3rd floor window today. It was terrifying. She is alive and suffered a spine fractured and few other things involving her lungs. But I CAN NOT begin to express to you to get child locks on your windows. A lot of children end up with brain damage, coma and death. It is more common then I even know. What a little mircle we were given today.

    I don't understand how this is common. What kinds of windows do most have? Are they already open?

    Sorry about the accident; Praise God she's alive

    Storys I hear in BC are usually in the summer, and people leave their windows open.

    Is she going to be ok? A spinal fracture can be quite serious. ((Hugs)) I'm glad she survived the fall.

    Thanks everyone! She is home now and on the mend. She is doing really well and expected to have a full recovery. 


    And it is VERY common for it to happen. Kids can open windows. Its terrible.
