Baby Dies After Falling Out Window in Brooklyn: NYPD



    Baby Falls Out Sixth-Floor Window of Apartment Building in Brooklyn: NYPD

    A 16-month-old boy was taken to the hospital in critical condition after he fell out of a sixth-floor window of an apartment building in Brooklyn Wednesday morning, authorities said. Roseanne Colletti has the story. (Published Wednesday, May 21, 2014)

    A 1-year-old boy died after falling out of a sixth-floor window at his Brooklyn home Wednesday morning, authorities say.
    The child, Theodore Nemon, fell from the sixth floor to a third-floor balcony at about 11:30 a.m. at the building on Crown Street in Crown Heights and was taken in critical condition to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.


    Emergency responders could not initially get into the third-floor apartment where the child was on the balcony because no one was home, so they went into a fourth-floor apartment just above the balcony and climbed down from there to retrieve the child. 
    According to first responders, the injured boy was home with his mother and babysitter.
    It's not clear how he was able to get out the window. 
    There were no window guards.
