A death inquest case has been opened to investigate the death of a four-year-old boy who fell from a window on Wednesday, August 12.

The boy was reportedly being watched by his 25-year-old uncle when the incident took place at approximately 9.20am. His parents had left the flat and tasked the uncle with caring for their son while they were out.

The boy reportedly fell from the sixth floor of the building. A crowd gathered outside the flat on Wednesday as an ambulance tended to the child. Unfortunately, he succumbed to his injuries.
