Child falls from third floor of Surrey apartment

Toddler lands in bush, escaping serious injury after incident in Newton on Saturday.

A toddler is taken away by ambulance Saturday after falling three floors from an apartment complex in Surrey.

A toddler is fortunate to have escaped injury after falling from a third storey window on the weekend.

Police say the two-year-old girl was playing in a room on the third floor of an apartment complex in the 12100-block of 75A Avenue at about 2 p.m. on Saturday.

Her mother went to check something on the stove, and the toddler climbed on some furniture to the window and leaned against the screen panel, which gave way.

The girl tumbled out, landing in a bush, and was taken to hospital where it was determined she hadn’t broken any bones or suffered any other serious injury.

Police are reminding the public to be extra vigilant with the warm weather, reminding residents that screen windows are not designed to withhold any weight.
