    Hopefully the little guy will make a full recovery.

    Please people, when you have kids, install child safety bars on upper floor windows. Its something people don’t think of. Praying this little boy will be ok, and suffers no long term damage.

    It’s good there were screens, at least, but even on 2nd floor unit, they should not have been so easily displaced by, nor potentially injurious to, a 2 year old tenant.

    Kids have fallen out windows much higher up, and there are basic industry safety standards as a result!

  • HowdyNeighbor

    Poor baby. :( Parents, check those screens. If you can push them out, so can your child.

    The same child had been spotted leaning way out of that window at least two times before in the weeks prior to his fall……go to WAGM TV’s Facebook page and you’ll learn all you need to know. It’s not good. (And yes, drugs were involved).

    Thanks to the BDN for covering this important story……better late than never.

       It continues to frustrate the heck out of me that they have one full time reporter up here and when she goes on vacation, I am told, the county is mainly covered “out of Bangor.” Seriously? Well, gee, that makes sense!

      Actually, illegasout, I’m that boy’s uncle. My brother, nor his girlfriend do drugs. Ever. At all. For that matter, they rarely drink. So, before you go passing judgement on people you don’t know, mind your own business. You don’t know the story and you need to pry yourself away from your keyboard and go do something productive.

        Hope the kid’s OK. Clapton lost a son that way a few years back.

        Not to be mean Mark, but Jess isn’t a very attentive mother. I know of three people from Ashland that have drove by and seen Jacob leaning out the window and she is nowhere in sight, myself included have seen this firsthand. When I told my friend Matt’s son was in the hospital, his first response was ‘did he fall out the window?’ Apparently him and his wife had drove by and seen him hanging out the window on previous occasions. Matt is a great person. He’s working over the road all the time to support his family. I applaud him for that. For anyone to accuse him of being involved with drugs is ridiculous. But it is what it is. Jess doesn’t pay attention to what’s going on or she doesn’t care. Jacob is ALWAYS playing in the window.

          If all of you have seen this kid hanging by the window before why didn’t you stop and tell someone like the mother? Maybe you should have told the police if you saw it happening so much. Obviously it was something you all spotted was wrong but did nothing more than drive by which makes you just as guilty as the mother not paying attention.

          First of all, TooShyToTell, Clearly you don’t know the parents as well as you think you do, the mother’s name IS NOT Jess! Putting peoples names in a blog could open you up to a libel suit, can you afford that?
          When you say the “toddler” was “hanging out the window” numerous times, evidently, they and/or you did not see the “screen” in the window, therefore he could NOT have been “leaning” as you say. Embellish your story for heaven’s sake! What is a LIE called? Embellishing!

          If you had seen this first hand and did nothing to help prevent it then you, too, are JUST AS GUILTY AS YOU THINK THE MOM IS!

            I never said that I or anybody else did nothing to prevent this. DHS had been contacted. DHS has also been to the hospital. Perhaps playing games on Facebook should have not been ‘the mother’s’ first priority. She should have been paying attention to her child. As far as not posting names…….Both parents have been posting updates on their Facebook pages. Not a big secret as to who they are…..Angela is her name, not Jess, my bad.

          I was responding to the comment that my brother and his girlfriend were on drugs.  Thanks for sharing, though.  Anyone ever tell you that you over-share?

          • Anonymous

            It’s my understanding that the drugs enter the picture via Mom (bio Mom).

          • Anonymous

            Your understanding is wrong.  She and I don’t always see eye to eye on things, but I assure you, she does not do drugs.

      Mean and vindictive rumor monger, get your facts straight! Not everything you read on the internet is the truth! Get OFF your high horse and walk a mile in any parents shoes and you will see it’s a difficult job, especially when you have two under the age of two! It only takes a second to glance away and an accident can happen!
            I want you to close your eyes, envision yourselves in the place of a parent or parents that have just had a tradgedy happen to YOUR child….then imagine, people who do not know you personally commenting online about how you DO or DO NOT take care of your child!
           The pain these parents are suffering, let alone the child’s pain, are excrutiating! Now you are being battered by the worst BULLIES who know nothing about you or your family except what they hear through the rumor mill.  How do you feel now? GUARANTEED, you would not like it!

      Never throw stones when you yourself live in a glass house…..even though you hide behind a made up name……..Think about it……….

    Ah, the Bangor Weekly News is finally on the stands. Or is it Weakly News?

    It would be much safer for children if every house had the windows that opened from the top down instead of from the bottom up!   My prayers are for the sweet boys recovery…

    Very sad and potentially tragic, like the ATV accident.  Children need  guidance and supervision. Apparently there was little or none in this case.  Praying for a full recovery and REMOVAL from current living conditions for that poor child and any others

      houltonborn,
      you poor uninformed soul………

  • Unless you have made no mistakes in your life
    be careful of stones that you throw.

    Sadly the Mother was most likely on Facebook/gaming, texting, or napping when this occurred.  Way too much of this is happening these days and parents need to be parents before having free time to themselves!  I hope Jacob makes a full recovery and actions are taking for him and his sibling to always be in a safe environment!

  • Praying for that baby.
