Mum made prediction about kids falling out of hotel window years before tragedy

3 min read

A woman staying at a Sheffield hotel claimed she was scared her children would "fall out" of the window, just two years before a five-year-old tragically fell to his death from the very same hotel.

Mohammed Monib Majeedi, a five-year-old Afghan refugee, fell from the window of a room at the OYO Sheffield Metropolitan Hotel on Wednesday (August 18).

Emergency services were seen racing to the scene in Sheffield city centre but tragically the little boy could not be saved, Yorkshire Live reports.

A member of staff at the hotel said that little Mohammed had fallen from a window at the back of the hotel, onto the NCP car park below.

And Google Maps images of the hotel shows numerous windows, toward the very top floor, wide open.

In a comment beneath one of the hotel's Facebook posts in 2019, a previous guest at the hotel appears to have complained about this very issue and claimed that the windows opened so wide that she was "scared [her] children would fall out".

The woman shared photographs which she claims had been taken from inside her hotel room, showing a window multiple stories high with no safety latch, which was open wide enough for a person to fit through.

In one of the photos, the woman appears to have leaned forward to show the sheer drop from her window onto the car park below.

Part of the woman's complaint reads: "The rooms we booked had no fans they were broken. I could not open the window as it opened so wide I was scared my children would fall out.

The Refugee Council has since called for a review into the housing offered to those fleeing the Taliban, after police confirmed that the little boy and his family had arrived in the UK from Afghanistan.

A fellow Afghan refugee, who witnessed the horrific death, told Yorkshire Live that Mohammed and his family had first arrived at Birmingham Airport "three or four weeks ago" before quarantining in Manchester and then arriving here in Sheffield just days ago.

The witness said: “They came here to save their lives, they came for a new life here, but unfortunately…"

Councillor Terry Fox, Leader of Sheffield City Council, has passed on his condolences to Mohammed's family at this horrific time.

He said: "I am absolutely heartbroken that a young boy has lost his life in this way. My deepest thoughts are with the family of little Mohammed, I can’t begin to imagine what they are going through."
