Mom makes boy jump from second story window

Mom makes Boy jump from second story window at gunpoint.

The woman, identified as 32-year-old Michelle Vail, also jumped out of the window after her son, Oscar Vail, did. Both suffered minor injuries and were taken to area hospitals.

Vail told the child a serial killer was after them to get him to jump out the window, according to police spokeswoman Yolanda Fernandez.

Vail had called police around 6.30am, claiming her ex-boyfriend was at the door in St Petersburg, Florida and she needed help.

Officers arrived at the apartment a short time later, but Vail wouldn’t let them in, saying she didn’t believe they were police, the spokeswomansaid.

“She was babbling incoherently,” Fernandez said. “None of it made any sense.”

As officers walked away, they heard the sound of glass breaking. They returned and could see that Vail had a shotgun and was banging it against a door and a wall.

Fernandez said officers heard the boy scream. They knocked down the door, but by the time they reached a back room, the child and mother had already jumped.

The boy was taken to a hospital, where officials say he is in stable condition and being kept for observation. Vail’s injuries were superficial, according to Fernandez.

Vail is being charged with one count of aggravated child abuse.

The Department of Children and Families has been contacted to coordinate custody of the child when he’s released from the hospital.
