UPDATE | Child taken to Seattle hospital after fall from window
A 4-year-old child was taken to a Seattle hospital after falling from a second-floor window Wednesday afternoon near Lynwood Center.
Bainbridge Island medics received an emergency call at 12:42 p.m. July 3 and were dispatched to the scene along with Bainbridge Island police. The child fell approximately 10 feet. The child was conscious and suffered non-life threatening injuries, fire department officials said.
The accident occurred after the child leaned against a screen which then gave way. The child slipped through the window and landed in the bushes below.
Because of the nature of the fall, however, the child was transported to a Seattle hospital for observation.
