Baby recovering after father jumps off balcony

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - An 11-month-old boy is hospitalized after his father reportedly grabbed him and jumped off a second-story balcony on Sunday.

An EMS crew responded to an apartment complex on Waialae Avenue shortly before 11 a.m. Witnesses say that after the father jumped, he left his son on the ground, and started running away.

Neighbors held the man until police arrived. The father and son are both in serious condition, according to a spokesperson for EMS.

Prosecutors charged the 35-year-old Kaimuki man on Monday with endangering the welfare of a minor.
