VIDEO: Toddler falls from Foster City apartment building


FOSTER CITY (KRON) — An 18-month-old boy has fallen from the third floor of an apartment building in Foster City, according to officials with the San Mateo County Fire Department.

The fire department received the first report of the fall at 8:19 a.m. at an apartment at the Water’s Edge apartment complex at 1200 E. Hillsdale Blvd.

The child has been airlifted to Stanford Hospital.

He is being treated for life-threatening injuries.

Officials say the boy was walking through a common hallway when he leaned on a screen and fell through the window.

Fire officials initially said the toddler fell from the second story.

Because fire officials expected traffic to be heavy, they called for a medical helicopter to respond to take the child to a hospital as soon as possible, Goodwin said.

Further details on the incident are unavailable at this time.
