Eric Clapton’s four year old son, Conor, fell to his death from the 53rd story of a New York City apartment after a
housekeeper who was cleaning the room left a window open. The boy was in the custody of his mother, Italian actress, Lori Del Santo and the pair were visiting a friend’s apartment. Clapton was staying in a nearby hotel after taking his son to the circus the previous evening. The tragedy inspired his song Tears in Heaven.
