A TODDLER today remains in hospital in a ‘poorly’ condition, after falling out of a bedroom window.

The three-year-old boy is in hospital, after going to play upstairs with his sibling, and then falling out of a bedroom window, at his Harehills home.

West Yorkshire Police have confirmed that the toddler is still being treated at hospital in Leeds, after the fall on Monday evening.

Detective Chief Inspector Mark Griffin, head of Leeds District Safeguarding Unit, said: “At around 7.50pm on Monday officers were made aware by staff at St

James’s Hospital of a three year old boy who was being treated for injuries.

“The boy had gone upstairs at his home on Bayswater Grove in Harehills to play with his sibling, and had somehow opened the window and fallen.

“Following a scan it was found he had injuries to his liver, eye and had internal bleeding. He was transferred to Leeds General Infirmary for further

treatment, where he remains in a poorly condition.

“This was a terrible accident which has resulted in a small child suffering serious injuries.

“Police are not treating this incident as suspicious and our thoughts are with his family.”

The child may be in hospital for some time, but his condition is stable as it can be.
