Grandmother Debra Oliver says her daughter didn't even know her son had fallen until a neighbor came to tell her.

Xion was rushed to Westchester Medical Hospital and had surgery to relieve swelling on his brain. He is now in stable condition, according to the family.

Neighbors say there used to be bars on all the windows, but they were taken down. Now, they are concerned about the safety of their children. 

The complex is operated by the Port Chester Housing Authority. The authority told News 12 that the incident is a horrible tragedy and that it plans to fully cooperate with authorities. It says there are a number of housing regulations that need to be met before bars are put back up in the windows.
