Three weeks ago, Alexis Adams and her son, Zohar P. Dillard, experienced a nightmare situation. Dillard, the 6-year-old son of rapper Flo Rida, was with his mother in the apartment where they live in Jersey City, New Jersey. They live in a 5th floor apartment with windows that face the street where there is a concrete sidewalk below.

On this day, Dillard, who is only 6 years old, and who according to his mother has “special needs,” fell out of the apartment window and landed on the concrete below. He survived, but according to News12, three weeks after the fall, Dillard is still “in serious condition right now.”

News12 described the damage from the fall as causing “serious injuries” including “multiple pelvis fractures, left metatarsal fractures, grade three liver laceration, internal bleeding and collapsed lungs.” Dillard remains in intensive care at a nearby hospital.

In a statement, the boy’s mom explained, “As a single mom to a special needs child, this feels like a nightmare. My heart is broken into a million pieces. I am devastated, angry and struggling to come to terms with the fact that my only child has suffered severe injuries due to willful negligence of our landlord and others involved in failing to take necessary safety measures.”

On March 27, Adams filed a lawsuit against the building’s management company, Pitch Perfect 74, LLC, Goldberg Management, Carlos Machado and additional building and construction companies that were left unnamed.

Adams’ attorney, Steven P. Haddad, claims that the boy fell due to negligence from the building’s management company. He claims the building was maintained “in a negligent, careless and reckless manner creating foreseeable and dangerous conditions.” More specifically, he claims that the windows in the building were installed with “incorrect sized guards”

The amount Adams is asking for in the lawsuit has not been disclosed, but she is suing to cover expenses like legal fees and medical bills as well as suffering due to mental, physical and emotional distress.

Flo Rida and the building’s management company have yet to comment on this unfortunate incident.
