Mom jumps out of fifth-floor window to save falling toddler


SEATTLE — A mother and her 2-year-old child were hospitalized after the toddler fell out of a fifth floor window in southwest Seattle Thursday afternoon.

The accident happened at an apartment complex in the 10600 block of 14th Avenue SW.

Commander Dick Malo with the North Highline Fire Department said a 2-year-old boy was on a couch next to a window on the fifth floor when he fell out of the window. The boy fell onto the fourth-floor balcony below, hitting his head.

The mother, seeing her child fall out the window, jumped out of the window to save him. She also fell onto the fourth-floor balcony and broke her ankle.

Malo said both mother and child were conscious and alert. The child suffered a bruise on his head. Both were transported to Harborview Medical Center for evaluation.
