LAS VEGAS -- A toddler is recovering after falling from the second story of a Las Vegas apartment. Authorities say the 2-year-old boy fell approximately 15 feet. Now, police are investigating how the accident happened.
The accident occurred at an apartment complex near Bonanza and Eastern. Police say early reports indicate a 4-year-old child may have opened a window, and the 2-year-old fell out. The boy's mother stood by helplessly as police combed the scene.
Neighbors watched in disbelief. "I saw this little boy fall down in the rocks," neighbor Geoffrey Neilsen said. "(The mother) watches over them like an angel. That's why I can't figure out what happened." "It's horrible. It's really sad. I can't even put it into words," neighbor Danielle Demello added. "It's scary, and it's sad. I am a mother of four kids, and I can't imagine what they are going through right now."
Neighbors and authorities say the accident should serve as a reminder to parents to keep a close eye on their kids. "Things do happen, and I think they happen for a reason: (To) open people's eyes up," Demello said. "It's real easy to take your eyes off a child, but accidents happen and even in a brief minute," Metro Police Lt. Dennis Flynn said. "It's unfortunate. Even one call is one time too many." "Accidents happen all the time, and we just have to be more careful with the kids," neighbor Evaline Johnson said. "(I) just hope that nothing like this happens again."
A similar accident occurred less than two weeks ago. Two children suffered injuries after falling from a third-story balcony at an apartment complex on the southwest side of the valley. Police say a relative who was caring for the children fell asleep. She had been drinking prior to the accident. Police charged her with child neglect.
Police have not indicated if they will file charges as a result of Monday's accident. Clark County Child Protective Services will also launch an investigation.
