A 3-year-old Zhejiang girl is in life-threatening condition after falling from the third floor of an apartment building earlier this week while her father was too immersed in a game on his smartphone to watch over her.
After eating dinner, Han Han’s grandmother went to wash the dishes and other family members went off to do other things. Her father, Mr. Zhang, was tasked with watching over his 3-year-old daughter. Zhang played around on his phone as his daughter played around with her toys beside him, Xinhua reports.
When Han Han’s grandma finished washing the dishes, she came out of the kitchen and started searching for Han Han. Zhang awakened from his smartphone stupor and called out Han Han’s name. But there was no response. He nervously searched every room in the house, but still there was no sight of the child.
Discovering that the window was open, Zhang looked out and spotted his daughter lying on her stomach motionless on the ground three stories below.
The family immediately called for emergency help. Sadly, the fall appears to have caused several fractures inside Han Han’s skull. She remains in critical condition.
