EVERETT — Two young boys fell out of open windows and were hurt Monday afternoon.
The first boy, 3, pushed against a window screen and fell three stories at an apartment complex in the 12100 block of Highway 99, according to South Snohomish County Fire. He landed in landscape bark and was taken to Providence Regional Medical Center Everett.
About two hours later, around 4:40 p.m., another boy reportedly fell out of a second-floor window at an apartment complex in the 800 block of 124th Street SW. He landed on a wood deck and was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
As temperatures rise, accidental falls follow. South County Fire recommended adult supervision, keeping furniture away from windows, not relying on window screens as a barrier to children, and installing window guards.
