A woman and a 5-year-old boy were killed after falling at least 14 stories from a Brickell City Centre high-rise, according to Miami authorities.
Just after 8 p.m., Miami Fire Rescue responded to a report of a “possible jumper” at 88 SW Seventh St., Miami Fire Capt. Ignatius Carroll said.
Crews first found the unresponsive boy on the sixth-floor terrace. An adult woman was found nearby in the shrubs, Carroll said. Carroll said the two likely fell from at least the 20th floor.
The unidentified woman died at the scene. The boy was rushed to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center in “extremely critical” condition.
