  1. We wish your child and family a full recovery from this tragic event. There is a reasonable expectation that a child will be safe in his or her home, but unfortunately this is often not the case. Window falls can happen in the blink of an eye to any child, but are so harmful to a child’s life. Child window falls can be prevented if parents are aware of some of the options that are available. If you would like to help us raise awareness for child window falls, you can find us at http://www.childwindowsafety.org.
