Child, 2, falls out of second-story window in Greensburg
A 2-year-old child was flown to a Pittsburgh hospital Tuesday after falling out of a second-floor window in Greensburg.
Greensburg police Sgt. Frank Newell said interviews with neighbors “indicate that it was an accident rather than a case of neglect.” He added that police will work with the Westmoreland Childrens Bureau to investigate further.
Newell said the child suffered “facial injuries” but added he had no additional information about the child's condition.
Greensburg police Chief Wally Lyons said the child was accompanied to the hospital by his mother and was not available to speak with police last night.
The incident occurred in the 300 block of Walnut Avenue, Lyons said.
Newell said the name and condition of the child will not be released until police can speak with the child's mother.
