“He was screaming and hollering. It was like somebody was getting killed,” says neighbor Jimmy Graham, 68. “He fell onto that grassy area. Workers had to cut the fence to get to him.”

It has been reported that the child was rushed to Jacobi Medical Center, where he then underwent emergency surgery to his leg and suffered from intense bleeding to his brain.

“When I came out they were putting him on a stretcher,” states the building tenant association President Norma Saunders. “It wasn’t a good sight to see. You never want to see a child being put on a stretcher. The mother was right by his side along with his sisters.“

It has been confirmed that the young boy removed a piece of cardboard that was in the window holding up the side of an air conditioner. Which leaded to him sliding through the side of the window.

He is currently being hospitalized and remains in critical condition.
