Since the beginning of the year, 25 children have fallen out of the windows of high-rise buildings in the capital, three of them have died, Kazpravda.kz reports with reference to the press service of the Nur-Sultan City Police Department.
August 2 this year, at 20:37, the police received a message that a 4-year-old child fell out of a window on the 8th floor on Imanbaeva street. It was established that the child was in the apartment with his parents. Playing on the windowsill, the kid fell out, leaning on a mosquito net. Father saw the moment of the tragedy, but did not have time to do anything. The child died on the spot from his injuries.
The Police Department constantly conducts preventive work with parents and warns about security measures. The increase in accidents related to children falling out of windows is registered especially in the summer.
The police forcefully advise adults to follow basic safety rules. Never leave children unattended, do not allow children to play near open windows. Remember that mosquito nets create the illusion of protection by provoking a child to lean on it; remove window handles or use handles with a special lock, install window latches and blockers.
