1 child dead, another critically injured after falling from apartment building


MINNEAPOLIS (KARE11) - lice say one child has died and one is in critical condition after falling from an apartment "opening" in south Minneapolis.

At about 2:20 p.m. on Thursday, squads were called to the building on the 2800 block of Pleasant Avenue South on a report of two children who fell from an apartment building.

Workers saw the children fall and provided aid, according to police. Officers arrived and provided aid until paramedics arrived.

Police say two children were brought to HCMC by ambulance. One has died, and one is still in critical condition, according to police. They say both children appear to be under 4 years old.

Investigators have spoken with family and are reviewing the scene. Public Information Officer John Elder says the investigation remains active.

"Our hearts go out to those that are affected by this tragedy and remind people to please ensure as we enter the warmer seasons that you keep your windows, sliding glass doors, and other areas secure so that young children and those that may be vulnerable can remain safe," Elder said.

Elder said the children were being watched by what was believed to be a responsible adult. Police say the children fell from a window or "opening," and they're trying to determine exactly what happened.

They don't know which floor the children fell from, but police say there are five floors.

Police do not know yet whether the children are related.
