A three-year-old boy is miraculously unharmed after falling from the third storey window of a Surrey townhouse.
The incident occurred on Sunday, October 16, at a home on 62nd A ave near 152 st.
RCMP Staff Sgt. Blair McCaul says the boy was at home with one of his parents when he pushed on a window screen and fell out of the window.
He says the incident appears to be an accident, and by a stroke of good fortune, the child landed on a second floor balcony.
“Fortunately no injuries, just a pure accident. They’re still doing tests just as a precaution, but they’ve not found any injuries, so it’s all good,” said McCaul.
He was rushed to a nearby hospital as a precaution, but McCaul says he appears to have suffered no major injuries.
“It could have been a lot worse, for sure,” he added.
It’s just the latest incident of a toddler falling from a Lower Mainland window.
Back in June, a similar incident turned tragic when a four-year-old boy fell from a third-storey townhouse window in Langley.
Last year, health officials issued a special warning after six kids fell from windows in a stretch of six days.
BC Emergency Health Services says paramedics are called to about 15 calls a year involving children falling from balconies or windows.
