In the space of four days, two children fell from two separate Surrey homes, and survived.

On Sunday, June 8, a six year old tumbled from a second-floor window in the 11200-block of 158A Street in Fraser Heights.

The girl was knocked unconscious for 30 seconds, but was conscious and breathing when paramedics arrived.

She suffered some lost teeth and bruising and was taken to Royal Columbian Hospital. She is expected to be fine.

It comes days after a similar fall suffered by a younger child.

On Thursday afternoon (June 4), Surrey RCMP were called to an apartment building in the 14900-block of 105 Avenue for a four year old that had fallen from a second-floor balcony.

The child was not showing signs of injury, but was taken to hospital as a precaution.

Police say the youngster had come out of the apartment through the balcony and climbed onto a chair that was against the exterior railing.

The child then climbed onto the railing and tumbled about three metres (10 feet) to the ground below.

Surrey RCMP are reminding parents that, with the warmer weather, they need to be careful not to leave windows or patio doors open where a child can access them.
