A two-year-old boy has been taken to hospital in serious but stable condition after falling from a window in Gladesville this afternoon.
CareFlight’s Rapid Response Helicopter was flying over Sydney shortly after 1pm, heading back to base, when tasked to help the toddler. The medical team had just taken a 15-year-old boy to hospital after he had been hit by a car in Manly.
After landing in a park in Gladesville, CareFlight’s specialist doctor and critical care paramedic were conveyed to the scene by NSW Police.
It’s understood the 2-year-old had fallen from a window on a third storey of an apartment building, landing on concrete below.
NSW Ambulance paramedics had provided initial treatment. CareFlight’s medical team provided addition treatment for injuries to the head and leg.
Treatment continued with the CareFlight team as the boy was taken by road ambulance to the Children’s Hospital at Westmead in a serious but stable condition.
Earlier, the helicopter had been tasked at 12.01pm to Manly, landing in a sports oval near the street where a 15-year-old boy had been hit by a car while riding a bicycle.
CareFlight’s medical team arrived and assisted NSW Ambulance paramedics who were providing initial treatment to boy for injuries in the upper and lower limbs.
CareFlight’s specialist doctor and critical care paramedic escorted the boy in a road ambulance. He was taken to Royal North Shore Hospital in a stable condition.
