Looking down the 1000 block of Felix in Google Street View

A child who fell from an apartment building window into a paved parking lot below survived and was taken to hospital.

Police and EMS were called to an apartment building in the 1000 block of Felix around 9:10pm last night. Arriving first responders found the distraught child, alert and moving, in the arms of a woman with a large bump on his forehead. He was taken to Hotel Dieu Hospital.

Police determined that the child climbed out onto a window ledge from an adjacent sofa. They say he pushed on the screen and fell to a paved lot, approximately 15-20 feet below.

Police say the child suffered no broken bones. His non life threatening injuries include a swollen forehead with facial abrasions and a swollen right eye.
