Toddler survives fall from window of Horsham flat
A three-year-old boy had a miracle escape after plunging from the window of a block of flats.
Neighbours said the unnamed child fell from the window of a flat in Gilligan Close, Horsham, at 2.30pm on Monday.
Sussex Air Ambulance and South East Coast Ambulance Service (SECAmb) went to the scene and the boy was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton by road.
The air ambulance landed in The Needles recreation ground, off Blackbridge Lane, near where the incident took place.
Subahas Patel, who runs a shop in Blackbridge Lane, said: “I heard from paramedics that a child fell out of a window.
“Apparently the child was coming in and out of consciousness.
“Paramedics stabilised the child and he was taken to hospital.
“People were all gathered watching and saying, ‘a baby fell out a window’.
“There were a lot of people around, taking photos on their camera phones.”
An air ambulance report said the boy was uninjured but was still taken to hospital.
The report added the fall was accidental.
A Secamb spokesman said: “This was a call to a private address, so we can confirm that we attended the scene and assigned the air ambulance, but we’re unable to comment further.”
