A BIT MORE
1. According to the Rabanan Kofer is the value of the Nizak and since the child has already been thrown off the roof he has no value, while according to Rebbi Yishmael the son of Berokah Kofer is the value of the Mazik and therefore even in this case there is a Chiyuv of Kofer. .
2. Even though if a Yavam has Bi'ah with his Yevamah b'Shogeg it is a valid Yibum, however it is only a Yibum if he intended for a Bi'ah even though he did not realize that it was his Yevamah but if he was not intending for a Bi'ah at all it is not a Yibum.
3. When he places a coal on someone's heart he expects it to be removed and therefore he is Patur and the same Din is true if he places the coal on the heart of a servant, however if he places a coal on someone's ox it has the same Din as if he placed it on his clothing.

Shmuel says that the Mishnah which states that a person who slips on a jug in the Reshus ha'Rabim and breaks it is Patur is only if it is broken in the dark, however during the daytime he is Chayav. The Korban Nesanel says that even in the twilight t he is Patur but if it is completely dark it is Pashut that he is Patur and therefore the Mishnah could not be referring to such a case. For that reason Rebbi Yochanan explains the Mishnah differently and he says that the case of the Mishnah is that he the jug is around the corner because he holds that if it is only slightly dark that he is Chayav.
A HOT COAL
If someone places a hot coal on his friend and he is burned he is Patur even if he was a\warned because he thought that it would be removed because it is unusual for a person top allow himself to be burned so that his friend will be Chayav to pay. However, if he places a hot coal on his friend's clothing he is Chayav to pay because the owner did not bother to remove it since he will be paid for the damages. A servant is the same as a person and an ox is the same as clothing. (Shulchan Aruch CM 418:18)
