Kissimmee police responded to the Budget Inn around 2 a.m. Tuesday.

Hmmm. Florida...Budget Inn...2am...

There's NO WAY this story is gonna be positive.

Maybe he was aiming for the pool?

Again? Didn't we just have a similar story a couple weeks ago?

Assume you mean this story, then yeah, we unfortunately did. In the NY case the father was in a custody battle with his estranged wife.

He should have jumped first. Preferably where there's a spiked fence.

I'm pretty sure this happened a few times in China recently too.

I've been a bit suicidal before, but the idea of jumping off my second-story balcony would always make me giggle.

To be fair, if the two of you have to go over the rail, the two year old pretty much has to go first.

Damn Puerto Ricans.

Even better is the sign from in front of the hotel.

Didn't a similar story happened sometime around Christmas?
 
2014-01-14 10:37:17 PM

Unfortunately for the dad, it was only two stories.

That must be a pretty small fridge if it draws such a low wattage.

He does get one point as a dad, he didn't ask junior to do something he wasn't willing to do himself and they did it together.

Since he failed to kill himself, shouldn't they charge him with two counts of attempted murder?  Or at least cruelty to an animal for the pain he caused himself.

/there are lots of dads teaching their kids self destructive behavior

"Sure son!"

Father of the year, maybe. Mensa candidate, definitely not.
 
2014-01-14 11:03:10 PM
Take the kid to the hospital. Leave his ass for the seagulls.
 
2014-01-14 11:08:30 PM
I'm a terrible person and likely going to hell, but I mentally pictured the father doing the Peoples Elbow from the second floor railing.

I would like to beat that man to death.
 
2014-01-15 12:31:50 AM
I saw some "true life cops" show once, and a father in a custody battle was holding his young son upside down on a high balcony by his heels. The kid was screaming, the people on the ground were screaming, and then the cops broke into the room and proceeded to beat the guy to a pulp. Yay.
 
2014-01-15 12:49:22 AM
DCF says the toddler suffered multiple injuries including several fractures, but is expected to recover.

*wince*

Thank god little kids bounce. I say that in all seriousness and hope the dad was much more seriously injured.

How do you "jump yourself?"
