GUILDFORD â€” 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.
Surrey RCMP remind parents to be cautious with leaving windows and patio doors open, as it can be inviting to children.
