Any person with autism and Down syndrome has to be supervised 24 hours a day...IT'S A TOUGH JOB... but why would you live 46 floors up with a son who has these illnesses??? That is crazy!
All morning the sad news spread through the Gold Coast high-rise: Charlie, the boy who had a smile for everyone, had died in a horrible accident, plummeting 46 floors down a trash chute.
"We're all shocked," said a woman who has worked for another family in the building for about 20 years. "He was such a sweetheart, he touched everyone because he was so sweet."
Charlie Manley was 17 and had autism and Down syndrome, authorities say. His parents noticed he was missing from their home in the 48-story building in the 1500 block of North Astor Street late Monday, police said....
Jena, who would not give her last name (BECAUSE SHE IS AN ILLEGAL BEANER), said everyone in the building knew Charlie for his big smile and friendly disposition. "He talked to everybody, he spoke Spanish: Have a good day, Happy New Year, Merry Christmas," said Jena, whose native language is Spanish.
