MANCHESTER, N.H. (WHDH) - A 3-year-old girl was flown to a Boston-area hospital after falling from a third-story window in Manchester, New Hampshire Monday night.
Emergency crews responding to a 911 call that had been dropped in the area of Thornton and Putnam streets around 9:40 p.m. found the child suffering from undisclosed injuries and the screen from the window on the ground, police said.
She was rushed by ambulance to a local hospital before being transported to Boston.
Her condition has not been released.
Neighbors, including Larry Woods, tried to keep the toddler’s mother calm as they waited for an ambulance.
“I came around here and I called 911 and the woman was just screaming so loud at the top of her lungs and I was scared to rub her back but I started doing it to calm the woman down,” Woods recalled.
He added that the 3-year-old is a “tough little baby” and that “I just really hope she pulls through.”
The incident remains under investigation but police say they believe it was an accident.
