Local E.R. Sees Several Children Injured From Falling Out Of Windows
A hospital in the Quad Cities area is sending a warning out. They're seeing a lot of kids fall out of second story windows. A Genesis Medical Center spokesperson says in the last two weeks, the emergency room has treated five kids.
Kids can break arms, legs, and have other injuries. Birgitta McNeal's four-year-old son fell out of the window from their second floor home and went to the hospital.
"He was upstairs playing in his sisters room with his brothers and sisters and he said he was looking out the window and from my understanding he must have looked too far," said McNeal. Experts suggest putting a bar across the window screen or change your windows.
