Baby boy critical after falling 2.5m from window at Sydney home

A young boy is in a critical condition after falling out of a window in Baulkham Hills in Sydney's northwest.

Paramedics were called just before 10am on Sunday to the Tamboura Avenue home, responding to reports an infant boy had fallen two-and-a-half metres out of a window.

The boy fell onto concrete and sustained a serious head injury.

Four crews, along with the CareFlight specialist medical team which included a critical-care doctor and paramedic, were dispatched to the scene. He was placed in an induced coma before being transported to Westmead Children’s Hospital.

Reminder to keep an eye on children at all times

Paramedics transported the child to Westmead Children’s Hospital in a critical condition after assessing and treating him for suspected head and facial injuries.

"The bystanders and neighbours went above and beyond helping the patient before emergency services arrived on scene," NSW Ambulance Inspector Greg Marshall said.

“It’s so important to keep an eye on our children at all times, it only takes a split second for tragic accidents like this to occur.”
