It's not clear how far the child fell. Firefighters said the child was conscious and breathing when they showed up.
Just two days ago another child fell out of a window in Happy Valley. In that case a 4-year-old boy was kicking a window screen from a bunk bed that was also next to a window. He fell about 15 feet and had to be taken to the hospital.
