The mother of a 4-year-old boy who fell from a second-story window in Vista said her life changed in the blink of an eye.
"Every time it comes to me, it takes my breath away," said Trinity Coles. "I need to get that picture out of my head."
Monday afternoon, Isaiah Ornelas fell from the second-floor window and suffered a serious concussion. He has been in the Intensive Care Unit for the last three days, Coles told NBC 7.
She said she was playing with Isaiah on the couch in their living room right before he fell.
"I was sitting right in the middle. I had just got off the phone trying to call his aunt," Coles said.
"Once I turned, I instantly knew what happened," she said.
Coles said Isaiah had climbed on to the couch and leaned on the screen window. He fell two stories down when the screen gave way.
"Anything can happen," she said. "Kids are so quick on their feet."
Doctors at Rady Children's Hospital told the family they had found a blood clot and Isaiah may need surgery.
He has been dozing in and out of sleep for the last few days, Coles said.
"We’re trusting God," she said. "He is going to be okay."
The family has set up a GoFundMe page.
