Toddler falls out of window in Framingham, survives

Posted by Ralph Ranalli October 5, 2007 02:30 PM


A baby took a frightening fall out of the window of her parents' apartment yesterday, but survived with relatively minor injuries.

The baby's mother was dressing in the bathroom with her 4-year-old daughter when she noticed that her toddler had fallen out of a window, WHDH-TV/Channel 7 reported on its web site. The 14-month-old girl apparently pushed on the window screen and then fell through. She plummeted three stories to the ground.

The baby remains at Children's Hospital Boston and is expected to be OK. The Dept. of Social Services is investigating the case, but a spokesperson said the agency had never been to the house before.
