Tuesday, 19th July 2016

A TODDLER has died after falling from the seventh floor of a block of flats.

The 18-month-old girl fell from a window on Ryland House in Great Hampton Row in Hockley, Birmingham, on Monday.

“Unfortunately, it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save her,” said West Midlands Ambulance Service.

The death is being treated as unexplained and a post-mortem examination is due to take place, said West Midlands Police.

Birmingham City Council confirmed the tower block is owned by the authority and the girl was not known to social services.

A spokesman declined to comment further while police investigate.
