ANTIOCH, Calif. – Talk about a tough kid: A California toddler is alive after falling 30 feet from an apartment window and landing on concrete and rocks.
Contra Costa County Fire Capt. Charles Thomas says the 22-month-old boy was alert and crying after the three-story plunge Sunday in Antioch that left him with just a cut on his abdomen, a bruised lung and a bump on his head.
The boy appeared to have climbed onto furniture near an open window and fell after pushing against the screen. He landed on concrete and a bed of rocks.
