PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — A 5-year-old has been hospitalized after police say he fell out a second-floor bedroom window of a home near Rittenhouse Square.
Police say it happened just before 3 p.m. Sunday along the 2300 block of Naudain Street, near South Street.
The young child is described as a 5-year-old Asian boy.
The young boy, officials say, is currently listed in critical condition at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
This is now the second child in Philadelphia to have fallen from a second floor window this month.
Just about two weeks ago now, a 4-year-old girl suffered head trauma and other injuries when she fell out the window of her mother’s home in North Philadelphia.
Her family says its a “miracle” her recovery has been so rapid.
