A 3-year-old toddler was pronounced dead after falling out of a window at a high-rise apartment building in Chicago..
A Chicago Police Department spokesperson told Newsweek the incident occurred Tuesday night at approximately 7 p.m. local time.
The 3-year-old boy was located inside the Lake View Towers apartments in the 4500 block of North Clarendon Avenue, a Chicago police spokesman said.
According to the police, the 3-year-old boy was located on the 18th floor of the apartment building when he fell through a mesh window. The Chicago Police Department said that after falling through the window, the boy “landed in a parking lot below.”
Shortly after the fall, emergency services transported the 3-year-old boy to Illinois Masonic Hospital, where he was eventually pronounced dead, a spokesman told the outlet. “Area detectives are investigating,” he added.
According to WLS-TV in Chicago, the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office later identified the little boy as Binion Chaise.
WLS-TV spoke with a few other residents of the apartment building who explained that the windows open to the interior of the building. However, police did not release more information about exactly how the boy fell, with residents telling the local news station that it is possible a small child could squeeze through the window opening.
The 3-year-old boy, identified by police as Daniel Galeas, was found unconscious outside an apartment building in the Harlem neighborhood of New York.
