    What does it matter if he is from a chashuv family or not. This child was Jewish. It wouldn’t make it less sad if he wasn’t from a chashuv family. So superficial….
    Moshiach now. May we soon be reunited with all the ones that left us!

    how can 5 month old get to the porch? that is so scary.

    These porches are many times not very safe

    These small porches have gates that are not nearly high enough for small children, especially if they play unattended. If a child stands on a toy, chair or table too close to the railing….rachmana litzlan. Such a tragedy! Baruch dayan haemes.

    How about who cares who the child is at all? Not whether he was jewish or not?!

    Of course it makes a VERY big difference to us that the child was Jewish! I’m not saying that if it was a goy, it wouldn’t be a tragedy, but the child being Jewish makes the tragedy much greater…

    The most unfortunate part of this whole story

    The most unfortunate part of this whole story

    Is what people have to say right after a child falls from a fifth floor building to his death. All peolpe can do is start judging the parent and determining if the child was worthy of living or not because his grandfather was this guy and uncle was that guy. Who cares who the child’s grandfather, or uncle was. Why does that matter? What about the father who is still grieving the loss of his wife, who now has do deal with the death of his 5 year old. That is the saddest part of it all.

    Anyone with child gates MUST CHECK THEM

    The opening bottom gate is to big.
    [Please get experienced person who KNOWS ABOUT GATES FOR CHILDREN, HEIGHT ETC ETC, CHECK OUT YOUR GATE.
    May we only hear Simchas.
    MOSHIACH NOW.

    You can see by the pictures that some of the families in that building have added a much higher metal fence on top of the existing one. As a bubby, I am always reminding my family never to leave anything on the porch that an active normal child could climb on and …. Perhaps our heimishe developers could begin designing the balconies with the extra height in the interest of safety. And people already living in these units should do the additional work themselves. A life is priceless. Moshiach NOW

    oh vey!!
