3:09 PM PT -- Flo Rida just addressed the incident on social media, saying "Great day, thank you to everyone who reached out with their concerns and prayers for my son."
"He is getting the best medical care and miraculously survived a tragic fall. I ask for your continued prayers as he undergoes rehabilitation but I would appreciate that this remain a private matter."
8:11 AM PT -- Steven Haddad, Alexis' lawyer, tells TMZ Zohar fell at least 50 feet and doctors say it's a miracle he survived. He said Zohar is going to have to learn how to walk again. He's still in a full-body cast and can barely move, which is tough for a 6-year-old.
Haddad says doctors don't know when Zohar will be headed home, but his mom Alexis has been by his side every day at the hospital.
Flo Rida's son Zohar was rushed to the ICU after falling out of a window 5 stories up, and the kid's mother is taking the building owners to court over it ... TMZ has learned.
According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, the 6-year-old's mom Alexis Adams filed a lawsuit Monday against various entities she claims are responsible for her son's fall from the Jersey City, NJ building. The defendants include a construction company and a window installation company.
Flo Rida is not a plaintiff in the suit ... and DailyMail reported, back in 2018, that Flo hadn't even met Zohar. The current status of the relationship is unclear.
In docs, Alexis says the incident happened at the beginning of March ... and she claims the defendants' negligence led to Zohar's fall from the 5th-story window to the concrete pavement below, leaving him with serious injuries. The little boy reportedly suffered a lacerated liver, collapsed lungs, fractures to his feet and pelvis, and internal bleeding.

She points the finger specifically at "incorrect sized guards" on the windows, and told News12 New Jersey she was completely heartbroken by what happened, adding ... "This feels like a nightmare."
Alexis is now seeking damages, including money to cover Zohar's medical bills. We've reached out to Flo Rida for comment ... so far, no word back.
