Two children survive falls in Guildford

GUILDFORD – In a matter of four days, two children survived a fall from the second storey of a building in Surrey.

 

Both were in Guildford. In the latest incident, police say a six-year-old girl fell through a

 

window and landed on her face in Fraser Heights Sunday night around 6 p.m. at roughly 112th Avenue and 158A Street.

 

The girl was unconscious for less than a minute and suffered broken teeth and scratches on her face.

 

Just four days before, on June 4, a four-year-old fell from a secondstorey balcony in the 14900-block of 105th Avenue.

 

Police say the child had gone out onto the patio, climbed up on a chair and toppled over the railing, falling roughly three metres.

 

The child survived with no major injuries.

 

Surrey RCMP remind parents to be cautious with leaving windows and patio doors open, as it can be inviting to children. Amy Reid
