Love the headline +1

Um, anyone else get the "stripper pole workout" ad next to the article? O_o

Weird juxtaposition, cute little kid in pic, and underneath a gyrating, twisting woman in a tank top and undies.

I don't think the mother was an idiot. She took reasonable caution--had the monitor on while watching the 3-yo who, if she's anything like other 3-yo's, is far more likely to get into more trouble than a 19-mo. After all, we don't know how the kid even managed to get up to the window, let alone push the screen out.

Headline: Nineteen-month-old falls out of 3rd floor window 25 to 30 feet below.

25 to 30 feet below what?

Good luck was with them that morning.
He fell in a pile of shhhh...aaving cream.
Be nice and clean.
Shave every day and you'll always look keen.

NightOwl2255: 25 to 30 feet below what?

The kid dropped out of sight so I'd guess it was 25 to 30 feet below see level.

She took reasonable cation except for making sure the window was secure. 1st semester parenting. She fails.

If it is an apartment/rental unit, expect the lawsuit where she blames the fall on the building for not having secure windows.

/This is why I had farking metal kiddie bars on my windows when I lived in NYC... because they put them in if someone with kids lives there, and don't take them off if adults move in since it is too much of a hassle. They don't want to be sued if some idiot isn't smart enough to keep their own kid from falling out windows.

I'd fault her if it were a window within easy reach of a toddler. But if we're talking about your average window that's a few feet off the ground, I still say she's not an idiot. Just because the kid can climb out of a playpen doesn't make him Spiderman. I still want to know how the kid got up to the windowsill.

And of course, it's a boy.

Ya don't hear too many girls doing that.

Her kid falls 30 feet and she calls her mother before calling 911? I'd say she qualifies...

That's just wildly inappropriate. Here's your ticket to hell.

He was just trying to orchestrate a great baby escape like Maggie Simpson.

I don't think that boy's family should be surprised if he sucks at math.

Did he bounce?

Anyone else find it interesting that was from the "Hancock Region"?

The boy didn't fall out of the window; it's just that my homemade toddler launcher messed up and didn't achieve the correct trajectory for maximum distance.

Mother's quote from TFA: "I call him a rock star, then I told him never to do anything like that ever again."

She warned her 19-month-old son to never again be a victim of bad parenting?

/good luck with that
 
2008-08-13 05:21:31 PM  
Maybe the mother was playing KICK THE BABY!

A local toddler walked away from a fall out of a third-story window Monday afternoon.

Nineteen-month-old Aidan DeBeck


Stopped reading there. She's one of those types.
 
2008-08-13 05:23:50 PM  
I guess the 5' of 25' to 30' fall means he was a bouncing baby boy.

2008-08-13 05:26:03 PM  
My experience with little kids is that if there is no one around to SEE them cry, they aint gunna cry.
 
2008-08-13 05:26:52 PM  
FTFA - Aidan is an active, curious child, his mother said, but he has never done anything like this before.

"I said his curiosity got the best of him this time," she said.


Or an open window easily reached by a 19-month-old.

Seriously, how DID he get to the ledge in the first place?

And calling Mama next door before 911? How about screaming your head off for Mom to come over WHILE you dial 911?
