A young Kennewick boy was flown Thursday toHarborview Medical Center in Seattle after falling from the second-story window of his Badger Canyon home.
Cpl. Erik Magnuson with the Benton County Sheriff's Office said the 5-year-old landed on the driveway of the home on Cottonwood Creek Boulevard and hurt his head. He fell about 2:45 p.m.
He first was rushed to Kadlec Regional Medical Center in Richland, then airlifted to Seattle.
Magnuson said the accident is under investigation, but that's routine in a serious accident.
Never miss a local story.
"It doesn't mean anything, except we want to make sure of the circumstances," he said. "Anytime a child is involved, it's tragic."
