In Pleasanton, California, a 3 year old boy fell out of a hotel window from the third floor. A fall from this height can result in serious personal injuries, head / brain trauma and damage, and, in some cases, wrongful death. Fortunately, the child’s fall was cushioned by a screen and a hedge. The child had leaned on the screen attached to the window prior to the fall. The child was taken to Children’s Hospital for treatment and evaluation. The fact that this child only suffered minor injuries is a minor miracle. This story shows the importance of safety precautions and supervision when a child is staying in a hotel or any building with windows that open or are accessible to children.
