It’s just surprising this man didn’t try and throw his wife from the window!
A refugee father has been arrested for attempted murder in Germany after allegedly throwing his three children from a window at their emergency accommodation centre.
Police received an emergency call in Lohmar in the west of Germany on Monday from a man who said he saw the children falling one by one from the first-floor window of the asylum seekers centre.
When medics reached the scene they found two of the children with serious injuries and they were both helicoptered to a nearby hospital.
A third child, aged one, was returned to his mother after treatment for light injuries after being kept overnight in hospital for observation.
The severely injured – a five-year-old boy and his sister, seven, suffered severe head and internal trauma.
The father, a Syrian aged 35, was arrested at the scene.
A special police squad has been formed to probe the incident – one of a rising number of violent crimes among refugee families,
‘The man offered no resistance during his arrest,’ said Police spokesman Stefan Birk.
The accommodation centre was declared a crime scene and cordoned off and the 30 people living in the house – a former Chinese restaurant – moved elsewhere.
The Syrian family lived in a large apartment on the first floor along with other asylum seekers.
Several families shared the bathroom a kitchen.
Aid workers have complained in recent weeks that a lack of space and privacy in the centers across Germany sparked violent confrontations and even abuse of children and women.
