A 4-year-old boy was in critical condition after falling from the 10th floor balcony of a Bronx building on Saturday, police said.
The incident happened around 3:15 p.m. at 1500 Noble Ave. in the Van Nest section of the borough, according to police, who said the plunge appeared to be an accident.
“I heard a girl screaming. And I saw him right there, unconscious,” said witness Nataly Rojas, 11, who pointed to a tree behind the building. “It’s scary, it’s traumatizing.”
A neighbor saw the child being loaded into an ambulance and a “frantic” woman standing near the vehicle, which rushed the boy to Jacobi Hospital.
“I just hope the baby is OK,” the neighbor said.
