A four-year-old Arab boy survived a fall from the first floor of an apartment in Al Buhairah area five days ago. The boy had climbed an object kept in the balcony of the building where he stays with his family, lost balance and fell down, investigations revealed. The police said it was an accident, while ruling out any criminal act or negligence behind the incident after interrogating the family members.

Lt. Col. Abdullah Salem Al Naqbi, director of Al Buhariah police station, said that they received a call informing them about the fall of a child from the first floor. The police immediately dispatched a team - comprising CID officers, patrols, and national ambulance - to the site.

The team rushed the boy to the hospital.

Later, a police delegation from Al Buhariah police station, headed by Al Naqbi, visited the child in the hospital to check on his health.

The child's father thanked the Sharjah Police for their prompt action which saved the boy's life. He also showered praise on them for constantly monitoring the child's health.

Al Nabi called on community members and parents to keep a vigil on their children in the house to ensure that no untoward incident happens. He urged them not to keep furniture - such as seats or tables - near windows or in balconies, so that children don't climb on them and risk falling down.
