    That is TERRIBLE. Such a fear of mine, having DD fall.

    I especially HATE when I see kids playing along or dangling on the rails at Masonville Mall with parents standing by. WTF?

    Agree, so, so sad for all involved and also the other people in the area when it happened. Must be very un-nerving.

    DH said the mom was carrying the LO and her older child ran and grabbed onto her legs and she lost her footing. Did anyone else hear the same thing?

    I can't stop thinking about it and that moment in time when the mom knew what was happening and couldn't stop it. I could never imagine

    If this is the case, then it's even more horrifying than I originally thought.

    Your life is a result of the choices you make, if you don't like your life it's time to start making better choices.

    I didn't want to post it if it wasn't true, but I wondered if anyone else heard the same thing. Hopefully its not the case. This is one of those stories i cant stop thinking about.

    So horrifying. We are taking the boys through Pearson in a couple of weeks. My boys are around the same age and I can see how such a freak terrible accident could happen so quickly. The family is in my thoughts.

    Here is an article from CP24

    MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — A toddler who died after falling some 15 metres over a railing at Pearson International Airport wiggled out of his mother's arms as she turned her attention to her other child, police said Monday.
    Foul play is not suspected in the 15-month-old boy's death and the tragic fall Sunday has been ruled an accident, Peel police Const. J.P. Valade said.
    “We've been able to determine the child was in his mother's arms. There was a four-year-old sibling that was nearby,“ said Valade.
    “When the mother turned to pay some attention to the four-year-old, the 15-month-old was able to sort of wiggle out of her arms and she lost her grip on the child and he fell over the balcony.“
    The Burlington, Ont., family, including the woman, her two children, her husband and a grandparent, were preparing to embark on a vacation to Argentina when the boy fell from the upper departures level in Terminal 1 to the lower level arrivals area.
    The family is “absolutely devastated, as would anyone be at the loss of a child,“ Valade added.
    Police got a 911 call about 7:20 p.m. Sunday and went to the scene with fire officials and ambulance personnel. The boy was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead about an hour later.
    Several witnesses were interviewed at the airport and police have a “great deal“ of video surveillance footage, Valade said.
    Witness Doug Ellis told CTV News that “people were there right away trying to save him and did everything they could to save his life.“
    A small makeshift memorial, with flowers and a stuffed animal, was set up at the scene on Monday.
    Officials at the Greater Toronto Airports Authority said the balcony partition is to code and called the fall an “isolated, tragic accident.“
