Lynn Child Seriously Hurt In Fall From Third Floor Window Identified

LYNN (CBS) -- The one-year-old child who fell from a third floor window in Lynn Thursday morning has been identified as Adrial Britto.

Emergency crews raced to the home on Saratoga Street just after 10:30 a.m. and found a window screen in the driveway where the toddler landed. They found the toddler awake and crying. Lynn fire and ambulance crews treated the child and then sent the toddler to Massachusetts General Hospital.

Lynn Fire Spokesman and District Chief Steven Archer says the little boy fell quite a distance.

"Apparently he pushed out the screen from the window and fell on an asphalt driveway. The fall was a pretty significant distance, I'd estimate a 22 foot fall," Archer said.

Police said several family members were at home at the time of the fall.

Fire officials say that there were no window guards on the window, but Archer adds that he wishes every family had them.

The toddler is reported to be in critical condition with serious head injuries.

No charges have been filed in the incident.

This is the seventh time a child has fallen from a window in the Boston area since June.
