Toddler tumbles from third-story window

The child landed in a narrow alleyway, where a chain-link fence separates the concrete surface from the neighbor’s yard. Leaves, a toddler’s shoe, litter and lumber with a few nails sticking out were beneath the window.
“No matter what she (the mother) does, she finds a way to get around it,” Zbink said. “She gets into things that actually amaze me.”
Victoria Ross, who lives next door, said Saliha was conscious and crying right after the fall. She said a broken leg prevented the girl from standing.
“It’s been said over and over again about the window,” Ross said. She said she always opens only the tops of windows, even though her children are old enough not to fall out the window.
Lt. Todd Boucher said it’s possible the child suffered a broken leg. He said police are investigating.
“We’re just looking into the circumstances surrounding the incident,” Boucher said.
