WEST JORDAN, Utah, Sept. 19, 2022 — A toddler was taken by medical helicopter to Primary Children’s Hospital Monday with serious injuries from a fall.

The child fell out a 3-story window at an apartment complex at 1601 West Fox Park Drive in the incident dispatched at 5:35 p.m., said West Jordan Fire Department Capt. Ken Pratt.

Life Flight helicopter transported the child whose injuries he described as “very serious.” Privacy regulations, he said, prevented him from commenting further.

Police were on scene, Pratt said, but he didn’t know the status of any investigation if one had begun.

By 11:30 p.m. Monday West Jordan police said the child, a 3-year-old female, was expected to make a full recovery.
She suffered several fractures, Public Information Officer Alondra Zavala said. “But we have been advised she is going to survive.”
The child, she said, was playing in a room with a sister when she fell through an open window the family felt was secured with a screen.  A police investigation is under way, Zavala said, routine in any such incident with injury.


Gephardt Daily will update the story as details become available.
