SURPRISE – A 3-year-old boy escaped serious injury when he fell from a second-story window onto a concrete driveway Tuesday afternoon.

It happened at a home in the 17300 block of West Acapulco Lane at about 4 p.m.

Police were told the child was napping in his bedroom with his twin brother. The boy apparently climbed onto the window seat area, unlocked the window and slid it open. He then pushed on the screen until it unlatched and fell onto the concrete below.

The boy did not show any apparent signs of injury when emergency responders arrived at the scene, but was flown to St. Joseph’s Hospital as a precautionary measure. Hospital staff later told police the child was not seriously injured and would be released that same evening.
