Second Of Two Kids Home From Hospital

By From Staff And Wire Reports

The second of two children who were thrown out of a third-floor apartment window was released Saturday from Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital.

Semaj White, 2, made a full recovery despite being listed in critical condition with chest and other internal injuries for 11 days following the incident, hospital spokesman Todd Kelley said.

Her brother, Sir-Rell White, 1, was less seriously injured and was discharged earlier.

Their father, Walter White, 28, has been charged with attempted murder. He is accused of tossing the children out of the Whites’ apartment window on Jan. 28. The children landed on the hood of a car 30 feet below.

Police arrived after emergency dispatchers received a call from someone at the address who hung up without saying anything. The arriving officers were told by White’s wife and the children’s mother, Sabrina White, 21, that he had attacked her with a hammer.

The state has taken custody of both children.
