A 5-year-old girl is hospitalized after falling from a second-floor window in unincorporated Lynnwood tonight.
Firefighters were called to the Tamaran Ranch Apartments in the 14500 block of Admiralty Way just after 7 p.m.
The girl fell about 15-feet from a second-floor bedroom window and landed on the hard dirt below. Medics took her to Harborview Medical Center with serious injuries.
“The screen was still in the window with the bottom corner popped out where the girl fell through. Screens can’t support the weight of even a small child,” said Leslie Hynes, spokesperson for Snohomish County Fire District 1.
She said this is the third window fall involving a young child that District 1 firefighters have responded to this summer. “We urge parents of young children to exercise caution when the weather is warm and windows are open,” Hynes said.
