As the child’s parents slept in their bed Sunday, in the 6300 block of Reedland Street, two-year-old Philip Redman Jr. crawled out of bed and on to the roof of the family’s home with Alfie, the family dog, in tow.
Family members say the boy’s parents placed a playpen in front of the broken window to keep Philip safe. Littlie Philip was able to move the playpen and climb out of the window.
“He climbed out, he literally just pulled himself out of the window,” said Philip Redman Sr., the child’s father.
Alfie followed little Philip out of the window and began barking. It was his barking that drew the attention of neighbors and Philip’s sleeping parents.
The little boy and Alfie were spotted running across the rooftops of several homes.
“I saw a baby running across the window, then I said that can’t be true, but then I saw a dog,” said neighbor Tina Mitchell.
