7-Month-Old Baby Boy Dies after Falling from Apartment in Normal Heights

A seven-month-old baby boy died after falling from the third floor window in Normal Heights at 4500 39th Street on September 7 around 5:12 p.m. Detectives investigating this accident arrested infant’s 33-year-old mother, Zewoinesh Badasso, on suspicion of murder.

According to San Diego police homicide Lt. Ernie Herbert, an eyewitness called the police to inform that a baby was lying on the ground under the apartment window.

Police officials and paramedics immediately transported the infant to a nearby hospital, where he was later pronounced dead around 5:50 p.m. Our law office offers our sincere condolences to the child’s family members for such a shocking loss.

In almost every premises liability case, it must be decided whether or not the victim’s carelessness contributed to the accident. However in this accident, it is clear that the infant’s mother’s carelessness might have contributed to the tragic death of the child.

Accidents related to dangerous premises can be silent killers and this accident may be an example of that.
Unlike other accidents, figuring out the cause of this child injury accident may be difficult, but not impossible. If it is determined that the primary cause of the child injury was due to negligence or wrongdoing, then the child’s mother would be held liable. If you have information that can help detectives solve this case, please call (619) 531-2293.

The child’s family members need assistance of an aggressive child injury lawyer, who has experience to provide dependable legal assistance during this hard time.
