Toddler seriously injured in fall from Linda Vista apartment window

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A toddler suffered serious injuries Thursday when he plunged out of a second-floor window at his family's Linda Vista apartment.

The accident in the 6600 block of Linda Vista Road was reported about 12:15 p.m., according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

Medics took the 16-month-old boy to Rady Children's Hospital for treatment of facial injuries and other apparently non-life-threatening trauma.

His father told emergency crews the child had pushed out a screen on a front window of the residence before falling about six feet onto a concrete stairway and tumbling another 12 feet or so down to the street level of the complex grounds, SDFRD spokesman Maurice Luque said.
