Toddler falls from third story window in Worcester
WORCESTER, Mass. (WHDH) -- A toddler was rushed to the hospital after she fell from a third floor window in Worcester.
The 2-year-old girl is expected to survive and is still in the hospital recovering.
Police said it appears the window wasn't locked and didn't have a screen when the little girl fell.
The girl's mother told police she was taking a shower this morning when one of her other children told her that she had tumbled down. The mom then rushed downstairs to her daughter, where a neighbor said she was screaming.
“She was freaking out, and I was trying to calm her down,” said Heather Williamson.
Williamson lives on the first floor of the building and said the little girl wasn't moving as her mom moved her upstairs.
“She wasn't crying or opening her eyes until she got upstairs on the bed. Her mom laid her down on the bed, and when the ambulance came, they put the neck brace around her neck, and then she let out a little cry,” said Williamson.
Police said the toddler was conscious by the time they arrived.
Williamson said the family seems like a happy one and she often sees the 2-year-old girl playing.
“Always smiling. Bright eyes. Big, bright, bright eyes. She's a playful little girl, always laughing and smiling, so hopefully she's okay,” said Williamson.
Police said at this point, it looks like the fall wasn't because of negligence by the parents and charges have not been brought against them.
