Boy survives two storey fall in Surrey

Police are reminding parents to be mindful of their kids around open windows and balconies

A child escaped injury after falling from a second floor window in the Sullivan Heights neighbourhood of Surrey on the weekend.

On Sunday at about 10:30 a.m., a boy just under two-years-old climbed up some boxes near a window, leaned against a window screen and tumbled out.

He was rushed to hospital, held for observation and released.

Police say it’s another fortunate result in a situation that could have been much worse.

Parents are reminded that young kids can be much faster than often imagined. Caregivers are reminded to secure windows securely and/or make sure children have no access to them.
