An eleven-year-old boy ran up to the policemen working at the collision near Polna Street in Sieradz (Łódź Voivodeship) and alerted that he saw a small child who could fall out of a window on the fourth floor at any moment. – Thanks to the boy’s vigilance, there was no tragedy – says a spokeswoman for the Sieradz district headquarters.
On Thursday, an 11-year-old boy was walking past a block of flats on Polna Street. He noticed objects falling on the lawn. When he looked up, he saw that a little boy was standing in the open window on the fourth floor, throwing items from the room outside for fun. The teenager quickly moved towards a police car standing nearby.
– Officers working at the site of the collision worked on the spot. They immediately ran in the direction indicated by the boy – says Agnieszka Kulawiecka from the Sieradz headquarters.
The policemen stopped in the place where other items thrown from the fourth floor were falling. They told the boy standing on the windowsill on the inside to go deeper into the room. One of the uniformed men ran to the apartment where the child was. The second one remained in place to insure the boy’s fall, if necessary, says the spokeswoman.
After the cupboard
The uniformed man who was at the door was opened by a surprised 30-year-old mother. Her two sons were standing next to her, including the one who had been on the windowsill a moment earlier. – Mother was sober. That day, she took care of the children, but at one point she went to the kitchen with her older son, says Agnieszka Kulawiecka from the Sieradz headquarters.
The younger, four-year-old child was supposed to seize the moment and climb the windowsill on the furniture next to the window. – Everything indicates that the boy himself opened the window and then, for fun, he threw out of it objects that were under his hand – says the policewoman.
He reports that the misfortune did not happen thanks to the very conscious reaction of an 11-year-old boy living in the area. – If it weren’t for him, a tragedy could have happened. From this place I would like to thank him – says the policewoman.
