Rusroshi Barua’s parents are devastated after their 3-year-old girl fell out of the family’s apartment bathroom window and down five stories to the ground on Feb. 10, where she tragically died.

Rusroshi Barua, 3, was locked inside her family’s bathroom with her 2-year-old younger sister when she fell out of the window and down five flights. Rusroshi was found seriously injured around 2:30 p.m. on Feb. 10 in the courtyard of her Queens apartment building, and was immediately rushed to Elmhurst Hospital where she later died due to her injuries.

After they realized their kids were accidentally locked in the bathroom, Rusroshi’s parents called the superintendent, Hazar Addyli, who unlocked the door. Hazar told the New York Post he found only one child inside, and she was pointing towards the window. The superintendent immediately went downstairs in the back of the apartment building to find the missing child.

Rusroshi Barua’s Parents Frantic After Little Girl’s Fall

A neighbor of the family, Ira Oppenheimer, recalled the parents of the child being hysterical after emergency services were called onto the scene, according to the Daily Mail.

“The father came running down with the wife. He didn’t have any shoes on,” Ira said. “They were both screaming as they were running toward the ambulance. The father was yelling, ‘That’s my daughter! That’s my daughter!’”

A family friend, Shaikritty Barua, escorted the parents out of the hospital yesterday as she helped to support Rusroshi’s mother since she could hardly walk. “It’s very sad. You can’t imagine, for now, they lost a child. They are not able to talk,” Shaikritty said.

Apartment Windows Not Equipped With Safety Bars

The bathroom window of the family’s Queens apartment did not have protective bars installed. Although Hazar insisted that all of the apartment windows had safety bars installed when the family moved in, there had been no maintenance requests to fix or repair the bars.

Police do not suspect any criminal activity. They are now investigating how the girls got locked into the bathroom and exactly how long they were there until the superintendent could get inside. It is still unclear whether the window was open before the girls entered the bathroom.

Unless youre a retired detective, if the NYPD doesnt suspect crimimal activity (as it states) then you shouldnt either. Shame on you for accusing a grieving mother.

Theres more to the story then they are saying thats forsure. Like why when the landlord locked the door was the mother not right there? He was the first to see the girl pointing at the window? and the first to call 911 and the first to go see her. When all reality it should have been the parents running down the stairs first to get the child etc. They may not have locked the children in there, But there was neglect in more ways than that.

This article never said the parents locked their kids in the bathroom. If they locked them in there themselves y would they call the superintendant to get them out? The article clearly states the kids locked themselves in accidentally. Read the article before you judge. I cant imagine what these parents are going through why dont u shut your mouths & give them time to grieve. Go tend to your own children.

Wow.. i fell out a 2 story window at 3 yrs old too. But i was playing in my room with my brother not far from my parents. Why would they b locked in a bathroom? Poor parents (not). More could of happened. Such as drowning. I dont blame my parents and thank God i lived and perfectly fine but locking kids in a bathroom? That should b jail time.
