The Star Malaysia - - News Nibbles -

GE­ORGE TOWN: A five-year-old boy cheated death when he fell off from the fifth floor of his flat when he was left alone at home.

He sus­tained se­ri­ous in­juries and is still be­ing treated at the in­ten­sive care unit (ICU) of the Pe­nang Hos­pi­tal.

Ge­orge Town deputy OCPD Supt Izwan Abd Karim said the mother of the boy, known as Dini, was out to pick her sec­ond child from a kinder­garten in Sun­gai Ara at 1.20pm when the in­ci­dent hap­pened.

“The mother left her son, who she claimed to be a hy­per­ac­tive child, alone at home as he was sleep­ing.

She be­lieved the boy tried to throw the bi­cy­cle down through the win­dow grill and tried to reach it when he fell to the ground floor,” he said.

He said the boy was in crit­i­cal but sta­ble con­di­tion.
