    Baby thrown out of second floor window

    Saturday night, 23 November, it was alleged that a fight erupted between a mother and her boyfriend at Sasol Flats, near extension 1, eMbalenhle. A child, between the age of 1 and 2 years, was thrown out of the window of the second floor flat into rainy conditions during a fight. 
    One of the people who live nearby saw a young child flying through the window and immediately contacted an ambulance.
    The ambulance responded very quickly and saved a young baby’s life.
    “I thought that somebody was throwing away waste until I heard a loud scream of a baby which shocked me till now,” according to one of the neighbours.
    The neighbours wished they knew what had happened between the couple that led to the small child almost losing her life.
    Upon arrival, the emergency personnel found the mother of the child in a state of shock. They tried to stabilise the child before transporting her to the hospital. 
    Her condition remains unknown at the moment as the statement from the mother was still to be confirmed by the police. Some people who saw the incident didn’t waste time to get on social media to shame the family.
    According to the police, at the time of going to print, there was no case opened at the station.
    The eMbalenhle community had mixed emotions after two people were killed and three people died in separate incidents last weekend. The increasing number of senseless killings in eMbalenhle is a major concern for everyone and police cannot fight it alone.
    It is high time that serious steps should be taken against killings and hijackings that are happening in eMbalenhle. – Sandile Mkhwanazi
