Toddler survives fall from second-story window

Posted: December 4, 2012 - 3:16pm

A 1-year-old girl was transported to Arkansas Children's Hospital with only minor injuries Tuesday morning after falling from a second-story window.

Conway police were dispatched to a residence in the 1400 block of Hartje Lane around 9:30 a.m., after a caller reported the child fell through a window screen while leaning against the window.

According to officials, the child sustained only minor injuries from the fall and was transported to the hospital as a precaution.

An officer on scene said the incident looked "purely accidental."

The incident was reported to the Arkansas Department of Human Services as required by law. The toddler's 21-year-old mother was not cited.

Glad to hear...

...the child is okay.

That is one of those things that will make a parent's heart stop.

Praying.

Praying for the Little Girl. My 2 year old did the same exact thing almost a year ago.She landed in a bush about 5 feet off the ground and then landed head first on the concrete step. She ended up with a skull fracture. She made a full recovery. The Physicians at Children's are the best.

great news

Shes fine, no broken bones, nothing shattered or damaged. She has only a couple of bruises on her face. I just know she had a guardian angel watching over her
