Chicago Police are investigating a tragic fall that claimed the life of a 3-year-old boy who landed in bushes after leaping from a window late Tuesday night.
The toddler had apparently tried to push out a window screen in his family’s 17th-floor apartment before he fell into bushes outside the residential building and right below the window at around 10:40 p.m.
The Cook County medical examiner identified the victim as 3-year-old Lamar Roach Jr. and added that the fatal incident occurred at the 1100 block of North LaSalle Drive in Chicago.
Police said that the death is being probed as accidental. They said that the toddler was not alone at home when the tragedy took place.
