“…Family members said the girl was on the balcony with two adult relatives and was playing with an inflatable toy, Bernstein said. The toy became wedged in the railing and she slipped through and fell…”
A toddler who fell from a fifth-floor balcony at an Oceanfront hotel Friday night died Saturday. The girl fell from a balcony at the Sandcastle Oceanfront Resort Hotel and landed on a patio of the Ammos Authentic Greek Cuisine restaurant, said Officer Adam Bernstein, a police spokesman.
The names of the toddler and other family members are being withheld to give the family time to inform relatives and friends, Bernstein said. The girl’s family lives in Staunton.
“Everything right now is pointing toward horrific accident,” Bernstein said. “At this point, there’s no indication of any foul play or neglect.”
