Fall River toddler who fell from third floor dies
FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) -- A Fall River toddler who fell from a third-floor window earlier this week has died.
A spokesman for the Bristol District Attorney's office said the 26-month-old girl died Friday at Hasbro Children's Hospital in Providence, R.I.
He said his office is not releasing the girl's name.
The Fall River Herald reported the girl fell from an East Main Street apartment after leaning on a window screen that gave way. Witnesses said she lay motionless and was bleeding when emergency crews arrived.
Police are investigating, but say there's no evidence the death was suspicious. A department spokesman told the Herald the incident was "a tragic accident."
