National May. 16, 2012 – TOKYO —

A three-year-old boy fell to his death from the balcony of his 11th-floor apartment in Adachi Ward on Tuesday after his parents left him home alone.

According to a TBS report, the 15-story apartment block’s superintendent called police at around 4:30 p.m. to report that a toddler was lying on the ground outside, having apparently fallen from one of the apartment balconies. The boy was taken to hospital where he died a short while later.

Police said the boy’s father was at work and his mother was out shopping at the time of the incident. The unattended child is believed to have climbed up a laundry drying rack that had been left on the balcony and then fallen to his death, TBS reported.

Japanese parents are amongst the worse in the world when it comes to safety. Their attitude towards danger is so lax it defies belief!
My heart goes out to the father but the mother should go to jail for negligence!
