BRADENTON, Fla. (WFLA) – A 2-year-old boy was airlifted to All Children’s Hospital after falling from an apartment window on Tuesday,

It happened at about 1:20 p.m. at the Royal Palm Terrace Apartments located at 5030 26th St. E. in Bradenton.

A Manatee County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson said the boy’s mother was cleaning her second floor apartment and had the windows open to air the residence out.

Two children, ages 2 and 4, were in the apartment. The mother heard the older boy say something about not going out the window to the 2-year-old boy. The mother ran to the window but the younger boy wasn’t there.  The mother then ran downstairs and found the boy on the ground.

The boy was responsive and appeared okay, but was transported to the hospital for further examination.  The distance of the fall was 15 feet, according to the sheriff’s office spokesperson.
