A 19-month-old toddler was airlifted to Egleston Children’s Hospital Tuesday mid-day after the child fell from the second story window of a home in the Riverstone subdivision in south Pickens.
Sheriff’s spokesman Kris Stancil said the child was apparently pushing on a screen in an upstairs window when it came loose and both the screen and child went out.
Medics and sheriff deputies responded. No names were released as no charges are expected.
Stancil said the child was conscious and alert and crying when he was airlifted, “which is a good sign in this case.”
