Child Falls From Window in North Las Vegas

A toddler fell through the second story window at his home in North Las Vegas Sunday afternoon. 

The 2-year-old child hit the ground and was bloodied from the fall, but escaped with minor injuries. 

North Las Vegas Police dispatched their Crime Scene Investigation Unit to the home in the 5700 Block of Distant Drum Drive, off Tropical Parkway and Pecos.  They say it's routine to send investigators to any scene where a child suffers injuries. 

The child's mother took the child to a nearby fire station for aid.  Police say it is always advisable to call 911, cautioning that moving the child could cause additional injuries. 

The child was rushed from the station to UMC Trauma.  Doctors say the child received some mild to moderate injuries, but luckily escaped any serious or life threatening damage to the body.
