Dad Charged With Tossing Baby Girl Out 7-Story Window; She Lives
(Peekskill-AP, June 23, 2003) — A Westchester man has beeen arrested and charged with attempted murder for allegedly tossing his 10-month-old daughter out the seventh-floor window of her mother's apartment. Miraculously, the girl lived, suffering only cuts and bruises.
Peekskill police say the incident began late Saturday night, when Willie Williams barged into his ex-girlfriend's apartment in the Bohlmann Towers Complex in a bid to persuade her to get back together with him.
Police say Williams forced the woman to get in his car and go for a ride. He ultimately drove her back to the apartment and while continuing to argue with her began dangling the baby, Meana Williams, out a window.
Police say the mother called 9-1-1. While she was on the telephone, police said, Williams dropped the girl.
"Oh, my God!" police quoted the mother as telling the 9-1-1 operator. "He killed my baby."
But the girl survived the 80-foot fall, crashing through several tree branches before landing on the ground.
Williams then left the apartment, grabbed the baby and drove her to Phelps Memorial Hospital, where she was expected to recover.
Williams was charged with attempted murder, assault and unlawful imprisonment.
