A toddler survived a fall from an upper-story apartment window near Pike and Boren late Sunday afternoon.
Seattle Fire units were at the scene to treat the child in the raised courtyard behind the Villa Apartments just above the Plymouth Pillars off-leash area on the backside of the building. The victim suffered lacerations in the fall but was conscious when medics arrived, according to emergency radio dispatches. Seattle Fire rushed the child, reported to be around 18 months old, to the hospital for further observation and treatment.
Seattle Fire and SPD were called to the area to a report of at least a four-story fall just after 4:30 PM. Police were at the scene investigating the incident.
According to Seattle Fire, the boy fell onto a pergola before falling to the concrete courtyard. The child was reported by SFD as “alert” when medics arrived and was transported to Children’s Hospital.
The Villa Apartments building is made up of two structures including a five-story addition to the original 1908-built structure completed in 1990. It is managed by Capitol Hill Housing.
