LUCKY BOY: Lisa Parkinson with her son Tallis and the broken window of their Largs home. A matter of centimetres is all that separated baby Tallis Parkinson and likely death as he slept in his cot at Largs.
About 2am on Thursday a rock smashed through the
bedroom window, showering the five-month-old in glass.
The quarry rock, half a house brick in size, ricocheted off the headboard of the bed and into the cot landing on the baby.
“We’re lucky it didn’t hit him directly because it would have killed him,” grandfather Peter Parkinson said.
“It’s a cowardly act.”
The force of the impact cracked the cot.
Police investigated the scene and took the rock to the station as evidence.
The boy’s father, Justin Parkinson, had moved the young family in with his parents Peter and Cindy while they saved for a house.
Anika and Kayanna, sisters to Tallis, were asleep in the next room, also at the front of the house on Dunmore Road.
“[Tallis] had fine shards of glass all through his hair and he was screaming,” his mum Lisa Parkinson said.
A search of the area failed to find the perpetrator.
“They couldn’t have thrown it from the road, it had to have been right outside the window,” Peter said.
“I can only think we are the wrong target of someone’s revenge.”
Cindy was at work across the road at Whiddon Lodge
retirement village at the time of the attack .
“[Tallis is] one lucky boy,” she said.
