Lakewood Hatzolah urges parents to use window safety lock feature after two children fall from windows (VIDEO)

window-safety-lock[VIDEO BELOW] Lakewood Hatzolah is urging parents to ensure they properly make use of the safety lock features on windows after two children recently fell from windows.

In two separate incidents, children – approximately 4-5 years old fell from a second-story window after apparently opening the window and leaning on the screen to look outside.

“Many times, families move from basements to a two-story home, and the children aren’t used to it,” explained a Hatzolah member. “It’s exciting for them.”

The children, in both incidents, were miraculously not seriously injured after falling on soft ground below.

“Most new standard windows comes with a built-in safety lock which won’t allow you to open the window more than a couple of inches, but parents aren’t event aware of it,” the member said. “It’s a simple thing to use, and it can save your child’s life.”

  1. Great info! You have to figure out how to provide Vedio with out the pictures of woman not dressed properly showing at the end. Especially on erev yom Kippur.

  2. Let’s try to say that without using sarcasm. For instance, “Would it be possible to not post pictures of women in the future? I appreciate it.” Thank you for always looking out for us and making our lives safer. I look forward to your safety tips. Thank you.
