Wyoming Baby Recovering After Fall From Second-Floor Window
JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — A 13-month-old boy is recovering in Wyoming after falling from a second-story window.
The Jackson Hole News & Guide reported Wednesday that police say the boy landed in a patch of wood chips after pushing through a window screen.
Authorities say the boy appeared uninjured but was taken to a hospital in Jackson, which does not release the condition of minors.
Police say the parents were at work and a teenager was babysitting the child.
Jackson Police Sgt. Russ Ruschill describes the outcome as "a miracle" and says the accident "sounded a lot worse than it was, thankfully."
A neighbor who was outside called 911 after seeing the baby on the ground and the open window above.
Ruschill says, "She heard some screaming and put two and two together."
