The incident happened around 19:00 on December 7 at Block A in the building of the Department of Finance, Quang Trung Ward, Thai Binh city.

Ms. Dang Thi Hong - a resident of the apartment building said that at that time while cleaning the goods, she heard a strong noise from her family's corrugated iron eaves. Looking up, Ms. Hong saw a small indentation of corrugated iron and broken porous pieces below. Mrs. Hong called her children to get up the roof to see if anything had fallen. That was when she found a 3-year-old boy sitting on the roof sheet. She then frantically called for help and ask her neighbors to help bring the kid down.

According to people in block A of the Department of Finance apartment building, the location where the baby climbed out and fell off was about 25m above the ground. The fall made a hole in the iron sheet, broke a porous patch, bent the iron bar supporting the roof of the house on the 1st floor. The family of the child in distress lives in apartment 806 of the building.

The child's parents had previously repaired a number of household items in the apartment such as replacing the balcony fence with a tall glass door but did not install fences. Therefore, the baby was likely to climb up to play, then lean out of a chair, and fall.

At the time of the accident, the boy was at home with his mother, but then the mother went down to the first floor to handle some business, so the unfortunate incident happened.
