Did A Sukkah Block Jewish Woman From Escaping Borough Park Apartment Fire?

Broken windows next to an erected sukkah on the fire escape is seen at the building where a raging fire left a woman in critical condition on Oct. 16-2017 (Eli Wohl/VINnews.com

A Brooklyn woman was one of 10 people injured in an apartment fire after her balcony exit was blocked by the sukkah erected on her balcony.
Daniella Livy Stauber , 53, the divorced mother of three adult children, remains unconscious and on a respirator at a local hospital,  the New York Daily News reported. The fire started early Monday morning in the Borough Park neighborhood.
Liby was unable to jump out a window of her second-floor apartment due to the metal bars covering them, and the sukkah blocked her escape from the balcony. She reportedly shouted for help while waiting to be rescued.

May HaKadosh Baruch Hu completely heal her and everyone else hurt in the fire very, very swiftly, and also help with any losses they might have suffered.

Fake news. Literally fake news.

The window bars are legally mandated by the city. Leave it up to the media to add a Jewish angle to the story

The sukkah wasn't even on her floor. She was on the second floor.

max 12:19PM,

Wrong!
Only NYC approved window bars are acceptable. Those are easily opened from the inside if an emergency arises.
So were illegal window bars installed?

Abe,
That's exactly the kind that was installed

And it doesn't open from the inside. Stop making things up. They're meant to permanently attach to the window.

Mazel 3:39 AM,

You don’t know what your talking about. NYC approved window bars are indeed permanently attatched to the window BUT are mandated to open from the inside to prevent just such a fire tragedy.

You're talking out of your ass. This is what I installed and all my tenants Apartments.

It does not open from inside you idiot.

Just admit you're wrong and move on

Yeah I know what you installed in your tenant’s apartments. Perhaps you are unaware of the type of guards to prevent break-ins and burglaries from windows that face fire escapes. In case of a fire you want to be able to open the window guard from the inside, yet prevent a break-in from the fire escape.
I hope those tenants in your building are aware of the dangers they face by installing improper and life-threatening window guards on windows facing fire escape. You certainly aren’t.

So just so we're clear here,

I sent you the actual guidelines by New York City Department of buildings. The actual law that dictates what type of window guards to install on tenant Apartments.
I proved to you that this crap that you're peddling, that the window guards should be easily removable according to code, is a farce

But, like a little child, you continue fighting, linking to some obscure website that has nothing to do with the matter at hand. Great job

Picture of the actual window

You are incapable of logical thought.
If you feared a break-in through a window facing a fire escape and installed bars or a window guard incapable of easily being opened from the inside, what do you think would happen to those people trapped because they were unable to access the fire escape? You would surely be sued for negligence (perhaps criminally) for allowing such a window gate, bars or whatever you want to call them to be installed.
Far from being an obscure web site, it clearly shows which and why easily-opened gates from the inside are critical for fire-escape facing windows.
I’m glad I’m not a tenant in your building.
