2-year-old child falls from second story in unincorporated Redmond

Child was in critical condition at the time of transport.

A 2-year-old child was hospitalized after they fell from a window on July 21, plummeting about 15-20 feet from the second floor, according to the King County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO).

At about 12:30 p.m., a neighbor watched as the child was pushing on a window screen located on the second floor in the 10700 block of 242nd Place Northeast, in an unincorporated area of Redmond Ridge East.

The window was open and the child was able to push into the screen to get it dislodged, said Sgt. Eric White with KCSO.

The child was responsive at the scene but was in critical condition. They were transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

This is the second child to fall from a window in the Redmond area in recent months. In April, a 20-month-old boy fell from a sixth-floor apartment window near downtown Redmond and landed on top of a parked car below.
