Child falls from 20th floor in Sharjah, UAE, dies at 4.


A tragic incident unfolded in Budanig, Sharjah, as a 4-year-old child lost his life after falling from the twentieth floor of a building, as reported by Emarat Al Youm. The child, who resided in the Al Qasimia area, climbed through the window of his room unnoticed by family members, leading to the fatal fall. Major General Saif Al Zari Alshamsi, Commander in Chief of Sharjah Police, disclosed that the police received a distress call at 4 pm on Tuesday, alerting them to the child's fall.

Upon arrival at the scene, authorities found the child lying lifeless on the ground, with his body showing severe injuries from the impact of the fall. The police swiftly launched an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the tragedy, removing evidence from the scene and transporting the child's body for further examination. According to the mother's account, she was in the kitchen when the incident occurred, unaware of her son's actions until it was too late.

In response to the heartbreaking incident, Major General Al Shamsi highlighted the need for heightened vigilance and adherence to safety measures, particularly in high-rise buildings where the risk of accidents is greater. He stressed the importance of parents closely monitoring their children and implementing safeguards to prevent similar tragedies from occurring in the future.

The Sharjah Police Chief issued a stern warning against negligence in child supervision, emphasizing the grave consequences that can arise when caregivers fail to prioritize their children's safety. The incident serves as a poignant reminder of the paramount importance of child safety and the critical role that parental vigilance plays in preventing accidents and tragedies. As the community mourns the loss of the young child, authorities urge all families to take proactive measures to ensure the well-being and security of their children, particularly in residential settings with potential hazards such as open windows in high-rise buildings.
