    So they have arrested the mother, who is in critical condition? Is that correct?
    It seems odd to place her under arrest while she is still critical... but okay.

    I think possibly it's in order for police to be present at the hospital. Not only to prevent the suspect leaving if sedation's reduced, but maybe to provide some protection too?

    Or maybe to ensure police can ask her questions if/when she regains consciousness?

    Something puzzling me about this is that local people say they saw a cleaner at the house, as well as the woman. Yet at the links you can clearly see the door was ripped from its frame as (presumably) a battering ram was used by police to break it down.

    It would be reassuring to know at this point if the mom and child were indeed the only people in the house at the time both went out of the window. It doesn't alter the outcome for that poor little one, of course.

    It's confirmed the toddler died as a result of injuries from the fall.

    Sorry, either I got confused or the reports did. It was the poor window cleaner who apparently found the mother and child.

    Police are 'waiting to speak' to the mother at her bedside, so I guess that's why they have made an official 'arrest'.

    I think the family are Indian/Indian ancestry from this article, and it sounds like she had recently separated from her husband. That can be quite a big deal in Indian communities, even if they are British-born, Indian ancestry Brit citizens.

    So was it the window cleaner who saw them coming out of the window? If he could get access to the back of the property where they were laying, why did police have to break open the front door?

    Probably to make sure that there were no other victims in the house.

    You know, if police arrest someone, they should be obliged to name them. It can lead to all sorts of unnecessary problems if they don't. That's my opinion, anyway.
