ST. LOUIS -- A 2-year-old child is recovering after falling from a second story window in St. Louis.
It happened last night on Genevieve in the Walnut Park East neighborhood.
We're told the child had just minor injuries. The exact circumstances of the fall are not being released.
That incident serves as a reminder for parents as the weather heats up. An estimated 5,000 children are hurt every year after falling from a window, and those injuries tend to increase in spring and summer.
Children should never be left alone near an open window, and screens do not protect against falls.
