i have just done some diy and put new bookscases up
one ws left emtpy as this weekend was going to be fixed to wall before putting items in it
father in law put a toy out of reach from lo (why?? i sitll dont know!!!) on high shelf of this bookcase and toddler out of blue (an has never done this before) screams as bookcase comes hurtling down..he must have tried to climb bookcase...bookcase falls landing on opposite wall but all shelves came off and hit him though.
he is 23 months old and very impressionable
father and mother in law never let me see him today properly and keep saying he is well
i know he is def traumatised and was def wanting me rather than them
veyr heavy case that apperently did not touch him as landed on opposite wall of narrow room...but very vague details given to me...wall opposite completely damaged by bookcase pounding into it and needs redecorating..that could have been his skull!
i could see no bruising so i hope it is true but maybe incognito bump
lo very shaken and i am now
bookcase would have killed little one for sure if hit him as very heavy bookcase and i still cant beleive he was not hit but lied down in triangle between shelf and wall
how do i make him ok again...was a special bookcase all for him and now.....and all i keep hearing is thud then scream from upstairs...
