A medical officer at the facility said the boy sustained a severe injury on the skull and had lost a lot of blood when he was brought to the facility.

Shocked neighbours milled around the building while calling on National Construction Authority (NCA) to ensure storey buildings adhere to safety standards.

“It is sad to lose such a young boy. This is a tragedy that can befall any parent. We want to urge NCA to ensure that storey buildings meet safety precautions to avert such cases,” Ann Mumbe, an eye witness, said.
