    The child that fell was my nephew. He was placed in the bed after a bath as normal and he opened the window. His mom was downstairs getting school clothes ready as she always does for them. You can’t monitor what a child is doing every second. People need to understand what happened was an accident. There is no need for negative comments because you can take that elsewhere. Just please keep Mahkayden & familyin your prayers.
