By Star Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 08:18 p.m. HST, Sep 04, 2013

A 3-year-old boy was in serious condition after falling about 20 feet from a window in a residential building at 475 Atkinson Drive, near Kapiolani Boulevard and Ala Moana Center. 

Emergency Medical Services responded to the scene at about 12:35 p.m. and took the boy to an area hospital.

A witness said the boy fell from a window to the awning above the entrance to the Atkinson Plaza condominium.

The boy was initially conscious when rescuers first reached him, the witness said.

I think Allie is right. No mercy. First offense of any child found alone means CPS is called in and the child is automatically put info Foster Care and parents go to jail. Forget all circumstances. Parents MUST be perfect and not allowed any room to mess up. NONE!

Not a little biased are you? Might want to stick with the main problem, parents of any and all types need to better watch their children. Might help too if buildings had antifall protection at the windows.

Children move so quickly and it is not fair to assume or prejudge parents. The information in this report is so sketchy that we don't know where the parent(s) were nor what they were doing at the time. Nor do we know how the child managed to fall . . perhaps by pushing on a screen on a window. For all we know, Mom was in the bathroom . . .and I know for sure that I did not take my toddler into the bathroom with me every time . . . good grief.

Thank you-too many perfect people in the world that think "it only happens to the irresponsible" It can happen at a moments notice, then look who is on the other side of the fence.

KHON2 has a video of the boy getting into an elevator by himself and pressing the 5th floor button. He got out and evidently climbed up the open window which is part of the parking garage. Showed smudges on the wall. Fell onto the awning where you see the words, Atkinson Plaza. If the awning wasn't there, he would've fallen all the way to the ground. Said he is not a resident of the apartment building. Didn't say who he was there with.

Such an ignorant comment - that's ok, but please educate yourself by watching the video of this unattended kid getting into an elevator by himself. He was not moving quickly plus it showed exactly how he climbed into a window on another floor. The parents were simply irresponsible, simple as that.

As my sarcastic reply above indicates, American society in the 21st century is unrelenting, cold and unforgiving, expecting perfect out of everyone, lest we all pile-on and mob the alleged offender. All these armchair parents haven't had to rear a child. That or they aren't being honest about their children grabbing a pair of scissors, pulling on a shelf, trying to climb a shelf. Good grief is right.

Don't parents bother to secure their windows? We've had this happen so many times. All they have to do is make sure that the windows and lanais are secured so that children will not fall out or fall over. This is so sad and upsetting at the same time.
