LOGAN – April 28, 2012 – A toddler is in the hospital after falling from a 3-story win-
dow in the Logan section of Philadelphia. It was a three-story drop from the window
of the house at 4941 North 12th Street that could have killed a 1 year old Logan girl.
Philadelphia Police say the toddler fell out of an open window and landed in a trash
heap below. “I could sit here and cry right now,” said one of the neighbors. The neigh-
bor didn’t want to be identified, but she was horrified by what she saw when she heard
the news. Residents say a number of children live in the house, and they wonder how
something like this could happen. “I do know she has a whole lot of them living in that
house, down to the big ones to the small ones,” she said. Last month, Action News re-
ported a similar story in the Bustleton section of Philadelphia on 2300 block of Tremont
where another 1 year old made a three story fall and was uninjured when he landed in a
flower bed. Philadelphia Police and the Special Victims Unit are releasing few details
about the recent incident, but at this point, it appears to be accidental. The incident re-
mains under investigation. “It is really sad when it comes down to innocent babies gett-
ing hurt, getting beat up and bruised. These parents better get on the ball with these
babies,” she said.
