Toddler Falls 9 Stories From Montgomery County Apartment, Suffers Non-Life Threatening Injuries

WHITE OAK, Md. (WJZ) -- A toddler suffered non-life threatening injuries Wednesday after falling from a ninth-story window at a Montgomery County apartment building, fire officials said.

The incident happened at the Chateau Apartments in the 9700 block of Mount Pisgah Road in White Oak around 1 p.m. Wednesday, county fire and rescue spokesperson Pete Piringer said.

The toddler likely landed on bushes and mulch, cushioning the impact, he said.

Officials said the toddler was taken to an area hospital in stable condition.

Last month, a 2-year-old boy in Montgomery County was critically injured after pushing on a window screen and falling 11 stories.
