Why are they taking the word of a 3-year old? She could've tripped and fell. Personally, I feel it is very irresponsible of them to take his word and say "we have to accept that." Three year-olds have wild imaginations, don't know the difference between lying and not lying, and are not a source of accurate information. How do we know the building manager didn't push her, or she fainted, or many other possibilities?

Perhaps the mind of a psychotic 3 year old (not saying that the kid is psychotic) is an exception?

Toddlers are not aware of what they are doing half the time. For us who have kids. You know when you go to the park and you see the little once pushing themselves to get to a toy, slide etc.

I suppose that's possible. They should probably look at the manager, to see if he had any motive.

But my gut feeling is that she just reached into the shaft to retrieve her key, and fell. The kid probably has a very limited vocabulary, and couldn't explain what happened, or he just doesn't understand the difference between someone being pushed down, and falling down.

Did he get into the brownies?

A good child psychologist would be helpful here... obviously this is going to be a person with issues as they mature...
