4 yr old falls from 3rd floor

A little boy is very lucky to have escaped with only a fracture after a heart stopping incident in Surrey.

The local RCMP say the four-year-old was climbing on some furniture in his third floor residence Saturday afternoon when he slipped and fell against a window screen.

Police say the screen gave way and the boy then plunged three storeys onto a grassy area below the residence on 153rd St.

The most serious injury the child suffered was a fracture, and according to police he is expected to make a full recovery.

Investigators also noted they were called to the scene by British Columbia Health Services.

There was no indication any charges were pending, but police did issue a reminder to parents to fully secure their windows and doors to protect young children from the potential dangers they pose.
