Police arrested a 36-year-old woman yesterday on suspicion of leaving her five-year-old son alone at home after the boy fell from their third-floor home in Wing Hing House in the Fuk Loi Estate in Tsuen Wan at about 9.45am. The boy sustained leg injuries in the fall, but was conscious when he was taken to Yan Chai Hospital for treatment. He was later transferred to Princess Margaret Hospital and was in critical condition last night. The window of the flat from where the boy fell was not locked. The mother was granted bail of HK$500 and ordered to report to police on August 25.
