that awning, it could have been a lot worse: a local two-year old is recovering
after a fall from a second-story window Monday evening. The accident happened
at the Holly Court
apartments on Maple Street.
“The two-year old girl was in the living room
of an apartment on the second floor,” said Lieutenant Tod Sockman of the West
Sacramento Police Department. “They were all hanging out watching TV, and the
girl was standing on the couch. The window was open, but the screen was on. She
fell back through the screen. Luckily, there was an awning below, and it sort
of broker her fall before she rolled off and hit the ground.”
“She suffered a head injury that is not being
described as major, and had to be taken to the hospital.”
But besides that and some crying, the girl
seems to be okay.
The parents are not being blamed by police.
“It’s not any kind of neglect issue as far
as we see,” Sockman said.
