How could this happen? A 2nd story window - open - with a toddler near? I hope this baby is ok.

things happen -- in just seconds -- unless she was under the influence or gone from the home -- we should not judge --- i'm glad the baby is so far ok -- prayers to the family --

Agreed Tammy. We have no clue what happened. Maybe a screen was knocked out of the window. I'm sure that the mother is feeling terrible enough about this without people who have no clue what happened judging her. I'm praying for a full recovery for the baby.

Glad the baby is okay Heidi. I know how precocious they can be at that age.

Perhaps you can sue the landlord for having a window that locks and unlocks too easy ? Until then maybe a hammer and a nail might be helpful.
