4 Children Have Fallen Out Of Windows In A Two-Week Span

QUINCY (CBS) — A Quincy father says it’s a miracle his son is alive. The little boy fell from a seventh-story window to the ground on Saturday.

The boy and the window screen fell onto a tree below and he landed, unscathed.

He is better off than most of the other children that have fallen in similar accidents recently.

In Brookline on Monday, a five-year-old girl died after falling from a fourth-story window onto concrete.

About a week ago, a young girl in Framingham fell from the third-floor. She suffered a head and leg injury.

A two-year-old in Chelsea was saved from more serious injuries by the stuffed animal cow he was holding as he toppled out of a second-story window.

Window guards are available at hardware stores like Lowes. They adjust to most windows and protect children from pushing out the screen and falling.
