Woman throws 2 kids from window then jumps

Medics took the children, both under 2, to the hospital with head injuries; they are in critical condition

The Associated Press

LAS VEGAS — Authorities in Las Vegas said Thursday that a mother may face attempted murder charges after she apparently threw her baby, her toddler and herself out a second-story window.

Police Officer Larry Hadfield said the woman in her 30s and the children, both younger than 2, were taken to University Medical Center in critical condition with apparent head injuries. Their names weren't immediately made public.

Police said they responded a little before 6 a.m. to a 911 call from the home in a middle-class northeast Las Vegas neighborhood.
