Toddler Falls From Second-Story Window

The boy was flown to UC Davis Medical Center for a possible head injury.

A three-year-old Dixon toddler fell from the second-story window of a home on the 1700 block of Rehrmann Drive Sunday afternoon.  The boy was flown to UC Davis Medical Center for a possible head injury.

The call came in at 1:24 p.m.

“It appeared that the child fell onto a barbecue and possibly a garbage toter before hitting the concrete that was down below,” Dixon Fire Chief Aaron McAlister said. “The condition of the child was such that the paramedics felt appropriate to fly him out to a trauma center, which is UC Davis.”

An air ambulance landed at Tremont Elementary School to transport the child to the hospital McAlister said. As of Monday morning, paramedics at the Dixon Fire Department were still not aware of the child’s condition and were attempting to get an update McAlister said.

The Dixon Police Department also responded to the scene and McAlister said “all indications were that this was accidental.”

This is that a child had fallen from a second story window in Dixon. Last year, on April 27, a 2-year-old boy was hurt when he fell from the window of a two-story building on the 200 block of West H Street. That boy was also airlifted to a local hospital for treatment.

McAlister said that it is not uncommon for the fire department to receives calls of toddlers falling  from second-story windows.

 “It can be tragic,” he said. “Hopefully, he’ll be OK.”

The fire department has heard that the child will be at the hospital a few more days. Overall, it's looking positive.
