Child falls from apartment window in Cary

Posted March 9, 2010

— A 2-year-old boy was injured after falling from the second-floor of an apartment building in Cary on Tuesday afternoon, according to town officials.

Authorities said the child was jumping on a sofa when he fell through the screen door and out of an apartment window at 1011 Village Greenway. He fell head-first 14 feet onto the concrete patio of a lower apartment.

The boy suffered facial and head trauma and was taken to WakeMed for treatment.

Adults were home at the time the boy fell, town officials said.

    You must not have kids or you must be perfect. Kids get into scrapes and have bumps and bruises. It is part of growing up. You just hope that your kid is lucky enough not to get seriously hurt but it is all a luck of the draw.

    Stop being so daggummed judgmental.

    So, if you have children, then you know that it takes only a few seconds for them to get into trouble. So, while investigation may find this to be a neglect case, it is not one automatically.

    If you do not have kids, don't judge. It is SOOOOOOO easy for them to slip out of sight. I mean a stay at home parent has gotta pee ever now and then. :-)

    This story sounds confusing... how does someone fall through a screen door and then out a window? Maybe he feel out the window when he bounced on the couch and hit the screen on the window. Anyway, I heard this morning the child is going to be fine. Sounds like a very lucky child!! I'm glad this one had a happy ending!! It could happen to any of us!
