A 7-year-old Palo Alto boy was injured after falling from a second-story window and landing on the ground Saturday morning, June 2, Palo Alto police said.
The boy was playing on the back of the family sofa when the incident occurred at about 10:24 a.m., Palo Alto police Sgt. Sal Madrigal said.
Police and fire personnel were called to the apartment in the 2100 block of Williams Street, between Stanford and College avenues.
Palo Alto Fire Battalion Chief Doug Conn said the boy's parents called 911 after he fell 15 feet. When emergency personnel arrived, he was awake and breathing.
Madrigal and Conn said the boy was taken to a local hospital emergency room and treated for a broken forearm.
There was no evidence that anything other than an accident had occurred, Madrigal said.
