Boy dies after fall from third floor
Keep all windows secure by keeping furniture away
May the almighty gives the parents strength to bear the loss of their beloved child. Every time when such accident happens, even the authorities warn the parents not to leave the children alone, but it still it happens, it all because of the human negligence. There is no point to blame the authorities or the building owners, it is our extra responsibility to take care our children. Even today in the morning I have witnessed three young children are at eight th floor peeping out from the balcony and there was no one to look after. I request every parents to make sure that some one is there always with them.
