4/7 2:12 PM: A 3-year-old San Francisco boy who was injured when he fell from a second-story window Tuesday evening is recovering at San Francisco General Hospital, a hospital spokeswoman said today.
“He will be released soon…within days,” spokeswoman Marti Paschal said.
The boy fell from the living room window of a home in the 800 block of Meade Avenue in the city’s Bayview District just before 7 p.m.
Police said the boy had apparently pressed against a window screen and the screen gave way, sending him falling down onto a car below.
The boy’s mother had been in the kitchen at the time, police said.
Police believe the fall was an accident and are not pursuing a criminal investigation.
4/6 9:23 PM: A 3-year-old boy was seriously injured this evening when he fell from a second-story window of a Bayview District home, a police spokesman said.
It appears the boy, who was in the home in the 800 block of Meade Avenue, pressed against the screen of a living room window while his mother was in the kitchen cooking, Officer Samson Chan said. The screen gave way and the boy fell from the window, landing head first on a car below, Chan said.
He was rushed to a local hospital to be treated for injuries that are considered life threatening, according to Chan.
A preliminary investigation indicates “there is no criminal element involved,” Chan said.
“The investigation indicated that this was an accident,” he said.
“The mother was home and there was a screen on the window.”
