Baby in critical condition after fall

A ten-month-old ba­by boy is in crit­i­cal con­di­tion at the San Fer­nan­do Gen­er­al Hos­pi­tal af­ter he fell from the 2nd-floor bal­cony of his Princes Town home.

Po­lice say Javier Castil­lo was play­ing with his five-year-old broth­er on the 2nd-floor gallery of their home when Castil­lo's par­ents heard the child fall and his screams.

The par­ents rushed the child to the hos­pi­tal.

Of­fi­cers say Javier's par­ents are Venezue­lan na­tion­als re­sid­ing in this coun­ty.

Guardian Me­dia un­der­stands that the Chil­dren's Au­thor­i­ty has been called in to in­ves­ti­gate the in­ci­dent and will be speak­ing with both the par­ents and the land­lord.
