Paramedics performed CPR on the boy and rushed him in extremely critical condition to Ryder Trauma Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Crews later learned there might be a second patient, and that’s when they found the woman on the sixth floor. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Family members said both the mother and her son fell from at least the 20th floor. They identified the woman as 37-year-old Solange but did not give out a last name.
Fire officials said they had received a call earlier from a family member saying the woman had threatened to jump.
However, police have not yet specified whether the cause of death was an accident, a suicide or whether foul play was involved, as they continue to investigate.Copyright 2018 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
