According to the report, the toddler fell out of a second story window after pushing the screen out. The report said the child was conscious.
On June 1st, we reported on another child that fell from a Tacoma second story window.
The employees at the Harborview Trauma Center nickname the children who fall from windows, “window jumpers.” Every year at Harborview, between 50 and 60 children from the Seattle-are are treated for falls from windows.
Parents and caregivers need to get the message that screens are not strong enough to contain a child or toddler that leans on it. Window guards need to be installed on 2nd story windows in homes, daycare centers, etc. where small children live and play.
