Girl, 2, falls to death from 14th floor in Sharjah
Toddler was killed instantly after fall from a residential building in Mamzar area
We come from Allah and to Allah we will return. I don't get it, why is common sense common no more? Why do kids have to pay for their parents' carelessness? Kids are amanah, they are a special present from Allah which not everyone has. Please lookout for your kids.

Where was the mother, the housemaid or anyone????? How can people in a home be so careless as leaving a 2 year old all alone by herself. Very sad indeed.

very sad!! Its time to impliment a rule for each and every apartment to have grills placed on windows & specially balconies.I guess there is no other way to avoid this kind of incidents related to todlers.A one time investment of 1500-2000 dhs by the landlord or the tenant might have saved the child..may god bless her..

I would suggest, all buildings to come in with the plan of ensuring the windows have railings or bars. This would very much help all families not only with kids, but also adults incase of accidents.

You her soul rest in peace...parents should be more careful and never leave children unattended...seems this parents have not learned lesson from many of falls we heard before in this website..sorry for being rude!

iT is very sad that still children are falling from balconies , specially in Sharjah. If a toddler can go through the balcony, that means it is very low in height. I recommend 1.5 meter miinimum hight of the balcony wall. On the top there should be some railing to hold on to. Authorities should take some serious steps to prevent more incidents.
