Girl, 6, survives fall from second-storey window in Surrey with broken teeth

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

Both incidents 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, according to Surrey RCMP, but she checked out OK, suffering broken teeth and scratches on her face.

Just four days prior to that, on June 4, a four-year-old fell from a second-storey 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. A neighbour saw it happen and rushed to help.

The child survived with no major injuries.
