Two-year-old in critical condition after fall from second story balcony in Warsaw

Posted: Updated:
A two-year-old girl is in critical condition after falling off a second story balcony in Warsaw.

Warsaw Police say the fall happened around 7:30pm Monday night at the Canterbury Apartments. Lt. Kip Shuter said a man at the apartment told them he heard a scream while he was showering, and saw the girl on the ground.

Police report that the two-year-old moved a chair up to the balcony railing and stood on it, before somehow falling over the edge. The balcony door was reportedly unlocked.

Lt. Shuter says that Child Protective Services was called as part of protocol, but the incident is being treated as an accident.
