Baby Falls From Window in Linda Vista

A 15-month-old boy fell out of a window at an apartment in Linda Vista Thursday, officials confirmed.

The incident happened around 12:20 p.m. at 6675 Linda Vista Rd.

San Diego Police Department Sgt. Nick Borrelli said the infant had fallen from an apartment window onto some concrete stairs outside, but was responsive, breathing and crying when emergency crews arrived.

Sgt. Borrelli said the the window did not have a screen on it and was wide open. Investigators believe the child wandered behind or on top of a sofa positioned near the window. Once the child got closer to the window, he tumbled out of it and onto the concrete stairs below.

The boy's father called police to report the incident. The baby sustained a bloody mouth and was transported to Rady Children's Hospital for an evaluation. Sgt. Borrelli said the baby lost a tooth in the fall, but appeared to be okay.

Details surrounding the fall were not immediately available. Check back for updates on this developing story.
